Description L3support 2004-12-26 01:54:57 EST
Description of problem:
Some ia32 packages in compat layer CD fail to install owing to
dependencies error. But ia32 version of dependencies pacages aren't
included in the CD.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Compat Layer CD ( in RHEL4 ia64 pre RC1 ) 

How reproducible:
always 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount compat layer CD
   # mount -o loop RHEL4-re1201.0-ia64-compat-layer-i386.iso /media/cdrom

2. install ia32 packages
   # cd /media/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS
   # rpm -ivh kdebase-3.3.1-4.i386 octave-2.1.57-7.i386
   error : Failed dependencies:
           /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers is needed by kdebase-3.3.1-4.i386
           /etc/X11/xdm/Xwilling is needed by kdebase-3.3.1-4.i386
           gnuplot is needed by octave-2.1.57-7.i386
       Suggested resolutions:
           gnuplot-4.0.0-4.ia64.rpm
           xorg-x11-xdm-6.8.1-12.ia64.rpm

   # ls gnuplot-4.0.0-4.ia64.rpm  xorg-x11-xdm-6.8.1-12.ia64.rpm
   ls: gnuplot-4.0.0-4.ia64.rpm: No such file or directory
   ls: xorg-x11-xdm-6.8.1-12.ia64.rpm: No such file or directory
  
Actual results:
   # rpm -ivh kdebase-3.3.1-4.i386 octave-2.1.57-7.i386
   error : Failed dependencies:
           /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers is needed by kdebase-3.3.1-4.i386
           /etc/X11/xdm/Xwilling is needed by kdebase-3.3.1-4.i386
           gnuplot is needed by octave-2.1.57-7.i386
       Suggested resolutions:
           gnuplot-4.0.0-4.ia64.rpm
           xorg-x11-xdm-6.8.1-12.ia64.rpm

   # ls gnuplot-4.0.0-4.ia64.rpm  xorg-x11-xdm-6.8.1-12.ia64.rpm
   ls: gnuplot-4.0.0-4.ia64.rpm: No such file or directory
   ls: xorg-x11-xdm-6.8.1-12.ia64.rpm: No such file or directory


Expected results:
succeed in installing all ia32 pacakges in Compat Layer CD regardless
of installed ia64 packages.

This seems to be a distribution rather than an rpm problem.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-12-29 19:52:15 EST
You may need ia64 packages to resolve dependencies.
Comment 3 L3support 2005-01-04 04:21:34 EST
I think we need ia32 packages, but not ia64 packages. It seems to be
strange to install ia64 packages to resolve dependencies errors of
ia32 packages. Is it wrong?
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2005-01-04 13:05:08 EST
No.

For example, it wants a gnuplot *binary* to call... this is provided
by the ia64 package.
