Description Sam Williams 2004-09-14 00:19:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Yum provides the information on about 30 packages that need to be
upgraded for xorg, yet when you try to upgrade it complains after
downloading almost everything that it can not upgrade because
xorg-6.7.0-libs is unavailable. This condition has existed for months,
yet has not been resolved. I need X functioning in total and don't
know if there is something that wouldn't correct some of the issue I'm
currently having. The problem is being seen only on x86_64 hardware.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update
2. yum upgrade
3. error message
   
Actual results:
impossible to upgrade the xorg server code... continious errors, that
have persisted for the last three months.

Expected results:
find all necessary dependent packages and being allowed to upgraded.

if you're running yum 2.1.X you can run:
yum --obsoletes update

and it should take care of it

if you're running yum 2.0.X you can run:
yum upgrade

and it should take care of it.

you're not the first person to encounter the problem but everyone has
gotten around it.

also - in future error reports please include actual output from yum.
Comment 2 Sam Williams 2004-09-14 22:31:17 EDT
Seth, te version of yum is 2.0.7. Performing an "upgrade" does not fix
the problem. It complains about an unsatisfied dependency with
xorg-6.7.0-libs, like I already reported. I will send the error
message and the output of both yum update, yum upgrade, and yum
--version. The machine is a dual opteron system at work.

Your solution did not work. There is a problem with the xorg files in
the repositories for x86_64. I will send the error message from work
tomorrow, but please investigate this. I'm not sure why you said
"upgrade" would fix the problem because the problem description
specifically said the error occurred during upgrade. Anyway please
objectively look at this problem and describe an appropriate solution.

Thanks for your help....

I said that b/c for the 80 other people who have reported this problem
a yum upgrade has fixed it.

I also said that b/c for a shockingly large number of bug reports the
user asserts that they ran something when they've really not.

Comment 4 Seth Vidal 2004-10-08 10:44:14 EDT
Are you still seeing this problem? Do you still see it when using yum
2.1.5 or above?
Comment 5 Sam Williams 2004-10-14 23:51:29 EDT
yes... I just removed the exclude line today and got the following

And once more, for fun:

 yum upgrade 

what happens when you do that?

Comment 7 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 12:32:45 EDT
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.
