Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 111241
missing dependencies in yum
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:48:44 EST
Description of problem:
yum-2.0.4-3 does not depend on rpm-python and libxml2-python. That
is, yum doesn't require rpm-python and libxml2-python to get
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e rpm-python
2. rpm -e libxml2-python
3. rpm -i yum-2.0.4-3.i386.rpm
4. yum check-update
This will fail complaining that module "rpm" or module "libxml2" is
yum-2.0.4-3 has missing dependencies.
yum-2.0.4-3 should depend on both rpm-python and libxml2-python.
Dependencies on rpm are knd of pointless.
libxml2-python might be useful, punted upstream.
Would red hat stop changing my specfile? :)
from the yum 2.0.X specfile in cvs:
Requires: python, rpm-python, rpm >= 0:4.1.1, libxml2-python
so who made the change?
