Description Toni Willberg 2002-03-05 14:05:33 UTC
Description of problem:

up2date -u stopped working at some point, perhaps after I installed Ximian Gnome
and updated several components using Ximian Red-Carpet.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

up2date-2.7.11-7.x.2
rpm-4.0.3-1.03


How reproducible:
Always


Steps to Reproduce:

up2date -u

Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
There was a package dependency problem.  The message was:
A package providing libpisock.so.4 could not be found.

It would be nice to know which .rpm caused the dependency problem.

I did not find any way to ask up2date to be more verbose. Something like -debug
would be nice...

libpisock.so.4 was never provided by Red Hat. It comes from pilot-link (the
current Red Hat release is pilot-link-0.9.5-8). It's a conflict with the
packages provided by Red Carpet.

I will mark this bug as an enhancement request, since a sensible error message
is indeed more useful. Feel free to change it back and provide us with more
information if you notice something else is not behaving.
