Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 127608
incorrect error message in case of package conflict
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:45 EST
Description of problem:
OK, as we all know by now, the recent ppp update conflicts with
initscripts-7.53-1. This bug report isn't about that conflict
per se. However, the error message which up2date produces is
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (until ppp updated by hand)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. up2date --nox -u
Actual results: (the following are the last few lines of output)
Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
There was a package dependency problem. The message was:
Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
initscripts-7.53-1 requires pppd < 2.3.9
initscripts *conflicts with* pppd < 2.3.9 - which is the exact
opposite of what the above message says.
Obviously the interactive graphical version also produces this
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closing due to lack of response by reporter.
Also, up2date is deprecated and removed from Fedora Core in the latest
version. This is not a security issue, so it's not going to get fixed.
(It could be filed for RHEL if it shows up there.)
