Description Sam Varshavchik 2000-06-24 23:21:15 UTC
Fresh install of Red Hat 6.2.  Applied all patches except for kernel and

Beta2 upgrade in graphical mode.

After choosing the upgrade path, got to the point where the installer
reported an unresolved dependency on modutils by initscripts and kudzu.

Hit "Back" on that screen.

Hit "Forward".

This time, in addition to initscript and kudzu, the installer reports about
thirty packages with an unresolved dependency on glibc.

Chose default option to proceed.

Installer completes eventually, without reporting any errors.

The resulting system fails to boot, with the following error:

init: /lib/libc.so.6 : version GLIBC_2.2 not found (required by init)

Comment 1 Sam Varshavchik 2000-06-25 00:31:39 UTC
Restarted install, went into a shell.

glibc 2.1.90 was definitely not installed.

Attempted to rpm -U glibc 2.1.90 manually.

First attempt:

/usr/bin/memprof conflicts with file from package memprof 0.3.0-5

Fair enough.  rpm -e memprof

rpm -U glibc again, worked, machine then rebooted fine.

Checked things around -- sure enough, the memprof 0.3.0-5 package on the beta2
CD conflicts with glibc 2.1.90 686 rpm.  This will be filed as a separate bug.

Comment 2 Sam Varshavchik 2000-06-25 00:40:20 UTC
I should also mention that I reran the installer two more times, once in text
once in graphical mode (before I manually reinstalled glibc).  In both cases
glibc still wasn't copied by the installer.

Comment 3 Daniel Powell 2000-06-29 03:02:04 UTC
I also had the same kind of problems. The dependancies failed for most of my 
packages and the installer looped between modutils and glibc being a problem. 
A look at tty3 told me of dependancy conflicts. 

This does not seem to be a single occurance
