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):
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
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 .184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11
closing as not a bug.
