Description Frank Swasey 2003-09-22 11:24:29 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
up2date -u fails with the following message:

Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
perl-5.8.0-88.3                          requires perl-NDBM_File <= 1:1.75-34.99.6

# rpm -q perl-NDBM_File
perl-NDBM_File-1.75-34.99.6

Apparently a "1:" got prefixed to the require string in the perl spec file.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
perl-5.8.0-88.3

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.up2date -u

There was a package dependency problem. The message was:
 
Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
perl-5.8.0-88.3                          requires perl-NDBM_File <= 1:1.75-34.99.6


Expected Results:  The updated perl packages should have been installed.

Additional info:

perl-5.8.0-88.3 was released to fix a security bug -- that makes this a security
problem.
Comment 1 Chip Turner 2003-09-24 13:36:17 EDT
this is caused by the perl-NDBM_File not being removed on an upgrade from RH7.x
to RH8 or RH9.  The solution is to rpm -e perl-NDBM_File by hand; up2date should
then work.
Comment 2 Frank Swasey 2003-09-24 13:41:32 EDT
Ah.  Yes, removing the perl-NDBM_File rpm did allow the up2date to work.
