Description of problem:
As of Jan 13, 2004, I cannot install the popt and rpm updates for the
devel line of fedora.  This is because net-snmp is saying it needs

Unless I completely misunderstand snmp and how it works, why does
net-snmp depend on librpm*anything?  It seems like a bogus dependency.

If not, net-snmp needs to be rebuilt when librpm is.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the new net-snmp
2. Try to install the new popt or rpm updates


Actual Results:  Failure on installing popt/rpm because net-snmp needs
older versions.

Expected Results:  Installation should have gone fine.

I have had many problems because of the conflicts. One program killing
a whole system with the conflict due to rpmlib.

I have submitted another bug similat to this problem. I hope the dep
problem is corrected soon.

librpm is not a bogus dependency - you might want to take a look at

You're able to query via SNMP what rpms have been installed:

% snmpwalk -v 2c -c foo quux .
