Description Hans Ecke 2003-09-24 13:39:30 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030917

Description of problem:
Trying to install kernel-2.6.0-0.test5.1.43.i686.rpm from the above URL, I get
this message:
error: Failed dependencies:
        module-init-tools is needed by kernel-2.6.0-0.test5.1.43

This is wrong: the newest modutils (2.4.25-9 right now) already include a copy
of module-init-tools. Instead, the kernel should have a dependency on
modutils>=2.4.22-9: according to the changelog, thats when support for 2.5/2.6
kernels was added.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install the latest modutils etc
2.rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.0-0.test5.1.43.i686.rpm

Actual Results:  rpm outputs:

warning: kernel-2.6.0-0.test5.1.43.i686.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID
error: Failed dependencies:
        module-init-tools is needed by kernel-2.6.0-0.test5.1.43

Expected Results:  the kernel should install

this is a bit of a glitch; we're going to make modutils-with-module-init-tools
also Provide: module-init-tools, but due to my mistake that package isn't built
in rawhide yet...

This bug doesn't seem to happen anymore (for me anyway). Should it be closed?
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-13 15:32:22 EDT
Fixed in modutils-2.4.25-10.
