Description Mark Lane 2004-04-05 20:20:58 EDT
Description of problem:
It looks like there's a dependancy problem with x86_64 package of
kdenetwork as it seems to require i386 packages to run.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kdenetwork 7:3.2.1-2.x86_64
yum-2.0.6-1

How reproducible:
Well I haven't tried to repeat this one.


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install or Upgrade to Fedora Core 2 without kdenetwork installed
2. setup yum to install both x86_64 and i386 packages as needed
3. yum install kdenetwork
  
Actual results:
04/05/04 13:34:14 Installed: kdenetwork 7:3.2.1-2.x86_64
04/05/04 13:34:14 Dep Installed: pilot-link 1:0.11.8-3.1.i386
04/05/04 13:34:14 Dep Installed: kdelibs 6:3.2.1-1.4.i386
04/05/04 13:34:14 Dep Installed: readline 4.3-10.1.i386
04/05/04 13:34:14 Dep Installed: kdepim 6:3.2.1-2.i386
04/05/04 13:34:14 Dep Installed: coreutils 5.2.1-3.x86_64
04/05/04 13:34:14 Dep Installed: libxslt 1.1.4-1.1.i386


Expected results:
04/05/04 13:34:14 Installed: kdenetwork 7:3.2.1-2.x86_64
04/05/04 13:34:14 Dep Installed: coreutils 5.2.1-3.x86_64
.. the other packages are installed as x86_64

Additional info:
I don't believe this is yum problem. It did however seem break
kio-pop3 which wouldn't load. I reinstalled the x86_64 packages and
removed the kdecache from /var/tmp and reboot and now kio-pop3 starts
again.

i don't think kdenetwork can cause such problem. then 'rpm -qp
--requires kdenetwork' output does not show such dependency. It's a
bug in yum
Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2004-04-07 08:23:39 EDT
not sure this is a bug in yum - were the required packages in the
repository you were using for x86_64.

in my testing yum chooses the bettter arch whne it's available.

also - did you have these packages installed on your system before?
and what was the arch on the packages before?
Comment 3 Mark Lane 2004-04-07 11:10:16 EDT
All the required packages were x86_64 and installed from x86_64 
repository prior to the kdenetwork install. 
Comment 4 Seth Vidal 2004-11-01 14:37:55 EST
is this still happening?
Comment 5 Mark Lane 2004-11-01 14:47:42 EST
I don't think so. This is the only time I have seen this problem so 
it may be fixed.
