Description giulioo 2014-08-12 07:50:25 UTC
Description of problem:

The mgetty rpm explicitly declares a "conflicts" with the hylafax+ package, but this is wrong since the "conflicts" should be declared by the mgetty-sendfax sub-package, not mgetty itself.

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

Steps to Reproduce:

$ rpm -qp --conflicts mgetty-1.1.36-26.el7.x86_64.rpm

$ rpm -qp --conflicts mgetty-sendfax-1.1.36-26.el7.x86_64.rpm

$ rpm -qa|grep ^mgetty

# rpm -Uvh hylafax+-5.5.5-2.el7.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        hylafax+ conflicts with (installed) mgetty-1.1.36-26.el7.x86_64

Expected results:
mgetty-sendfax should declare a conflict with hylafax+.
mgetty should not.

Additional information:
mgetty (main rpm) and hylafax+ can coexist with no problem.

Thanks, for the report. I'll try to deliver fix in RHEL-7.1.

That's ok, packages will conflict implicitly. Note that explicit Conflicts: was added because of packaging policy in Fedora. To verify try installing mgetty and hylafax+ and mgetty-sendfax and hylafax+. Former combination will be installed without problems while later installation will fail due to conflict.
