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.
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)
Restarted install, went into a shell.
glibc 2.1.90 was definitely not installed.
Attempted to rpm -U glibc 2.1.90 manually.
/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.
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.
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
