Description John Fulton 2014-07-22 19:11:49 UTC
Description of problem:

The tomcat package has

  Requires(post): systemd-sysv

even if it is probably not needed.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have RHEL 7 installation without systemd, for example in a Docker container with fakesystemd.
2. Run yum install -y tomcat.

Actual results:

Transaction check error:
  file /usr/lib/rpm/macros.d/macros.systemd from install of systemd-208-11.el7.x86_64 conflicts with file from package fakesystemd-1-14.el7.x86_64

Expected results:

The installation passes, tomcat does not force the systemd-sys (and thus systemd) installation.

Additional info:

The the following can be used as a workaround: 

   yum swap -y -- remove fakesystemd -- install systemd systemd-libs

but it increases the image size unnecessarily. 

Bugs 1104138 and 1105045 are similar.

Comment 2 Václav Pavlín 2014-08-20 12:21:26 UTC
I think the simplest solution is to let fakesystemd also provide "systemd-sysv" as proposed in BZ #1126409.

systemd-sysv-convert will obviously fail but that shouldn't affect the result of the package installation.

Feel free to prove me wrong,

As noted in bug 1104138 comment 8, I don't think this is a duplicate. I'll leave it to the reporter of this bug though to reopen this bugzilla if they feel like the Requires should be removed.

Comment 4 John Fulton 2014-08-20 13:30:47 UTC
Why should tomcat depend on systemd?
