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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add "apt macromedia http://ruslug.rutgers.edu/macromedia/apt
fedora/1 macromedia"
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
system call".

Expected Results:  Packages required for resolving dependencies should
be located and installed (or a graceful error exit if they cannot be

Additional info:

Also tried with apt and with yum for livna repo and installing mplayer.

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.)

Comment 4 Chris Kuivenhoven 2004-09-04 22:16:56 UTC
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!
