Description Mark Hatle 2004-05-13 17:59:11 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030313

Description of problem:
When running rpm -V on certain packages, you get an Unsatisfied
dependency error/warning.

However, the depedency IS satisfied.

RPM version 4.2 (as shipped on RH 9) does not contain this problem.
RPM version 4.2.1 in the cvs repository has the problem.  The problem
was tracked down to revision 2.50 of the file rpmdb/rpmds.c

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run rpm -V -a
2.watch for "unsatisfied dependency messages"
3.verify the dependency is satisfied

Actual Results:  I get unsatisfied dependency messages

Expected Results:  No such message

Additional info:

Chunk of output from -V -a on RPM 4.2 (RH 9):

missing  c /etc/default/useradd
S.5....T c /etc/xml/catalog
S.5....T c /usr/share/sgml/docbook/xmlcatalog
.M......   /dev/shm

Same chunk of output from the same command, same database on RPM 4.2.1
(from CVS) [and RPM 4.3.1 from fedora]

missing  c /etc/default/useradd
S.5....T  c /etc/xml/catalog
S.5....T  c /usr/share/sgml/docbook/xmlcatalog
Unsatisfied dependencies for esound-devel-0.2.28-4: esound = 0.2.28
.M......    /dev/shm
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2004-06-07 08:29:45 EDT
Yup, missing epoch's are equivalent to Epoch: 0 in rpm-4.2.1
and later.

See the complete set of dependencies that need fixing with
    rpm -Vav
