Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 105846
kernel-utils requires() "libsnmp.so" instead of "libnetsnmp.so".
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:31 EST
The kernel-utils package requires(libsnmp.so.5). This is from the "UCD-SNMP
compatibility mode" of NET-SNMP and is required because kernel-utils'
"cpqarrayd" links against "libsnmp.so.5" instead of "libnetsnmp.so.5".
Since UCD-SNMP is no more and this causes conflicts whith third-party packages
(upstream RPMs for e.g. RHL9) it would be a good idea to link "cpqarrayd"
against "libnetsnmp.so.5" instead of "libsnmp.so.5".
The problem may be alleviated by Bug #100489.
This of course goes for anything depending on UCD-SNMP compatibility, but
kernel-utils and hpoj (will be filed as separate bug) were the only ones I found
(`rpm -qa --requires | fgrep libsnmp.so` on an "Everything" install) that had
Same problem for hpoj logged as Bug #105847.
Since "cpqarrayd" is no longer part of "kernel-utils" (as of Arjan's
change at Fri Jul 04 2003; tested in current Fedora Rawhide), and
kernel-utils no longer Requires(libsnmp.so.5), this is RESOLVED FIXED.
