Description Reuben Farrelly 2000-06-25 13:59:46 UTC
I've just tried to upgrade rpm from rpm 3.0.5-0.3 to rpm-4.0-0.45 and I 
now see this error:

[root@tornado reuben]# rpm -Uvh rpm-4.0-0.45.i386.rpm 
error: failed dependencies:
        libbz2.so.0 is needed by rpm-4.0-0.45

The problem being that libbz2.so.0 is a part of the old pre-1.0 release 
bzip2 rpm's.  The bzip2-1.0.0-2 provides these files:

So without downgrading to bzip2-0.95 I can't upgrade RPM without --nodeps 
on it...

Comment 1 Sammy 2000-06-26 20:39:54 UTC
Problem with packages being built with different libraries (inconsistent).
I saved my libbz2.so.0 libraries and restored them by hand after upgrading
bzip2. Then I used --nodeps. It takes them a while to get everything
consistent. This was the same with ncurses versions 5 and 4. Finally they
have the compatibility stuff in.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2000-07-05 12:15:04 UTC
The rpm 4.0 package that you (probably) downloaded from ftp.rpm.org is for
older Red Hat systems, not Red Hat 7.0. Older systems do not have bzip2-1.0,
so the dependency is correct.
