Description Alan Grossfield 2004-03-30 19:40:12 UTC
Description of problem:
pango-devel-1.2.5-4 rpm has mislabelled group, causing yum-based upgrades to fail
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Using a standard Fedora Core 1 machine which does not have the newest pango-devel, 
attempt to update the machine using 

yum update

Actual results:
Yum will fail on the download step, after downloading the header file.  From what I can tell, 
the header leads it to expect the rpm to be under base instead of updates.  I no longer 
have the screen snap, but it told me that the rpm couldn't be downloaded.  After verifying 
that it was in fact present, I ran

% yum check-update

As you can see, the pango-devel rpm is labelled as being in a different (incorrect) 
repository, which is why yum couldn't find it to download.  Manually installing the rpm fixed 
the problem, but the packaging error will mess things up for people who use yum.

Expected results:
Yum should have worked cleanly.

Don't think this has anything to do with pango per-se.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2004-04-07 16:52:02 UTC
This is a comps problem.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-07 19:29:22 UTC
Can you attach your /etc/yum.conf? Are you running as root?

Comment 4 Seth Vidal 2004-04-07 19:31:21 UTC
and a nice addition would be attaching:

Reopen if this is still a problem.
