Description Henri Schlereth 2000-06-24 00:22:29 EDT
During a GUI upgrade from 6.2 --> beta2 it first comes up with
(this is a non-custom upgrade). The original machine is a 6.2 server

Failed dependencies
package       requires
initscripts   modutils
Mesa          XFree86
kudzu         modutils

So I hit next and get a huge dependency list against glibc.

Additionally I have vt3 console messages that state
mkbootdisk conflicts with to-be-installed package modutils, removing from
set, * removed and so on. Most of these were removed against 

I hit next again and it loops back to

failed dependencies
initscripts --> modutils
kuduzu--> modutils.

And then back to the massive failure list. And loop.

This may be related to 12276/11987 w/o the disk space problem.
Comment 2 Henri Schlereth 2000-06-24 11:59:58 EDT
The aborted install (because of the loop) does wipe out the old rpm database
but left the new db files in place, I was able to proceed with a text
install which will be documented in a different bug.
