Description Paul Bender 2004-07-02 21:43:40 UTC

Description of problem:
Installed on my server, I have an RPM of freeradius-1.0.0-pre2 that I
created myself. When I build the RPM of freeradius-1.0.0-pre3, it
picks up the freeradius-1.0.0-pre2 libeap libraries installed on my
system rather than the free-radius-1.0.0-pre3 libeap libraries that
are part of the RPM that I am building. As a result, the newly built
RPM will not install, because it requires on libeap-1.0.0-pre2.so.

From my experience building my own RPM, I found the problem was caused
by the freeradius-0.9.0-libdir.patch included with the RPM. I found
that when I removed the patch, the problem went away and nothing else
seemed to go wrong.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build and install freeradius-1.0.0-pre2.
2. Build the freeradius-1.0.0-pre3 RPM.
3. Attempt to upgrade to the freeradius-1.0.0-pre3 RPM.

Actual Results:  freeradius-1.0.0-pre3 RPM fails to install because it
requires libeap-1.0.0-pre2.so.

Expected Results:  freeradius-1.0.0-pre3 RPM to install.

Additional info:

The problem can be worked around by uninstalling the old version of
freeradius before building the new version.

Fixed in rawhide in rpm freeradius-1.0.0-0.pre3.2 or newer.
