Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 116775
dependency checks have bizarre behavior
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:37 EST
Description of problem:
When trying to run up2date on rawhide on 2/24/04, the dependency
Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
gnomemeeting 0.98.5-1 requires libopenh323.so.1.12.0
gnomemeeting 0.98.5-1 requires libpt.so.1.5.0
However, gnomemeeting is not selected under the package list. In
fact, it isn't even available to be checked off.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run up2date
2. press forware until package list, check all boxes, but no
3. press forward again, and dependency check gives the above error
dep. check failure
continue to download/install, no gnomemeeting involved.
Just prior to this, I manually updated openssl because up2date was
requiring that it be updated in order to install openssl-devel, but
up2date couldn't obtain openssl itself.
Don't know if forcing that install could have made trouble. Perhaps
it deserves its own bug report, but the one above is certainly more
My complaint is "Duplicate" to this, but I characterize it as
packages". When a constraint is violated, then the error report
should list both the immediate cause _and_ a "traceback" to any and
all packages that the user selected for the current operation. Long
or wide tracebacks (more than 10 packages) might have to be truncated
in the middle, but at least some of the innermost [closest to error]
and outermost [specified by user] packages must appear.
Note that FC2 is no longer supported even by Fedora Legacy. Also, up2date has
been replaced by pirut and pup since FC5. FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora
Legacy for security issues only. If this still occurs on FC3 or FC4 and is a
security issue, please reopen and assign to that version and Fedora Legacy. If
it occurs on RHEL 3 or 4, please reassign or refile against that product.
The codebase for pirut and pup is quite different, so existing bugs do not
apply, but please continue testing them on the still supported versions of
Fedora Core and file bugs as necessary.
