Description Pekka Savola 2000-05-18 08:03:06 UTC
I grabbed the updated krb5 packages, but there's a small problem with them
(note: we only use krb5-libs and krb-configs here; the bare minimum I
think)..:


krb5-configs-1.1.1-15 installs fine.
krb5-libs-1.1.1-15 complains about dependencies:

error: failed dependencies:
	krb5-configs is needed by cvs-1.10.7-7
	krb5-configs is needed by pine-4.21-8


I believe krb5-libs is trying to Obsolete krb5-configs, which causes the
breakage in older, RH62 cvs and pine.

The problem might be in incorrect handling of these lines in spec file:

%if %{!config_subpackage}
Obsoletes: krb5-configs
%endif

RPM version should be recent enough, the one that came with RH62:
rpm-3.0.4-0.48

You're right, this is a packaging error.  We're building fixed versions now.
Until they're released, you should be able to upgrade with the "--nodeps" flag
and then re-install the krb5-configs package.
