Description of problem:
When I installed Ximian Desktop 2, XD2's gnome-cups-manager required the removal
of redhat-config-printer. However, whenever I run up2date it thinks I need to
reinstall/upgrade redhat-config-printer-, even though doing so would
require the removal of large chunks of XD2.

$ rpm -Va --nofiles

returns nothing, so there don't seem to be any missing or conflicting
dependencies, and this is confirmed by

$ rpm -q --whatrequires redhat-config-printer
no package requires redhat-config-printer

Why is up2date doing this?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install XD2 (uninstalls redhat-config-printer)
2. Run up2date

Actual Results:  up2date informs me that I need to install/update

Expected Results:  No update/reinstallation of redhat-config-printer required

Additional info:

Running up2date -p does not help.

I am not the only one experiencing this. See:

I have the same issue.

With the command:
rpm -Va --nofiles

I get:
Unsatisfied dependencies for redhat-config-printer-gui-
redhat-config-printer =

I am not certain how to resolve this dependency.  (New to RedHat and RPM).

Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2004-08-23 14:38:37 EDT
current versions fix this (both of Red Hat and Novell/Ximain Desktop)
