Description David Jericho 2004-11-23 01:41:48 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
When using up2date to install extra packages, if depenencies are
required up2date crashes with a trackback. Sample trackback is
included below in additional information.

If I manually look up the dependancy list elsewhere, and install each
of those by hand either one by one or on the same command line, no
error occurs.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e libstdc++-devel gcc-c++
2. /usr/sbin/up2date gcc-c++


Actual Results:  Up2date crashed with a traceback displayed.

Additional info:

Comment 4 Adrian Likins 2004-11-24 18:41:07 EST
what version of openssl is installed?

Comment 5 David Jericho 2004-11-24 20:11:24 EST
As of now, openssl-0.9.7a-40
Comment 6 Jay Turner 2004-11-25 03:44:18 EST
Adrian, openssl-0.9.7a-39.  I've been able to reproduce the failure for a number
of different packages (that is, attempting to download the subpackage fails, but
attempting to download the main package succeeds and pulls in the subpackage.)

Comment 8 Adrian Likins 2004-11-29 11:22:31 EST
re comment #6, any info about which packages it fails on 
would be appreciated since I'm not seeing it with openssl
Comment 9 Adrian Likins 2004-11-29 12:16:07 EST
nevermind, I see the bug now... bleah, totally broken.
testing a fix at the moment.
Comment 10 Adrian Likins 2004-11-29 15:15:54 EST
fix in up2date-4.3.68
Comment 11 Adrian Likins 2004-12-01 15:52:59 EST
and for what it's worth, I have what I belive to be a
a better fix for this and several other multilib related
dep issues/bugs/kluges/etc. I'm testing it for regression
now in case I get a chance to rev again

Comment 13 Jay Turner 2004-12-04 13:21:18 EST
up2date-4.3.68-1 appears to be working pretty well in this area, so closing out
this bug as it's included in the latest RHEL4 trees already.
