Description of problem:
On attempt to install a package requiring dependencies up2date hangs
if the dependencies are not already satisfied.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add "apt macromedia http://ruslug.rutgers.edu/macromedia/apt
2. make sure compat-libstdc++ RPM is *not* installed.
3. run "up2date flash-plugin"
Actual Results: up2date hangs after printing "Testing package set /
solving RPM inter-dependencies..." Ctrl-C kills the process with the
message "There was some sort of I/O error: [Errno 4] Interrupted
Expected Results: Packages required for resolving dependencies should
be located and installed (or a graceful error exit if they cannot be

With Fedora Core 3 test 1 "rawhide" this seems to work fine. The
current behavior is for up2date to advise of other rpm's required to
be updated in order to satisfy dependencies, ask for permission, and
then get them as well. I believe this worked in Core 2, also. Can you
Yes, it appears to work with FC2. I just installed Frozen Bubble from
Livna and it grabbed SDL_ttf from Fedora Extras with no problem.
(flash-plugin no longer depends on compat-libstdc++, so I couldn't try
exactly the same situation as failed oriinally.)
The integration of libsilc with gaim caused up2date to obtain libsilc
for me yesterday. The only problems I have with up2date updating
packages at this point are just package dependencies where the
packages just need to be updated (and this typically just takes a day
or so) and is being tracked in another bug.
Unless you want to test further, sounds like you can mark this one as
Thanks for the quick followup!
OK Done. Thanks.
