"me too" - seeing a similar error, except, I am not seeing the bind

$ sudo up2date NetworkManager
Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
NetworkManager  0.3.3-1.cvs20050112.1.fc requires caching-nameserver

Curiously, bind doesn't appear to be installed here-

$ rpm -q bind
package bind is not installed

Comment 2 Dan Hensley 2005-01-20 23:51:55 UTC
For the time being I worked around it by installing caching-nameserver
and bind, but this isn't a good long-term fix.  The new NetworkManager
RPM introduced new dependencies that could not be resolved.

Comment 3 Dan Williams 2005-01-21 14:11:53 UTC
Well, the question is is /why/ can't they be resolved, when they
clearly exist in the FC3 repositories...


Marking as up2date problem...

Note that I'll be pushing a slightly less-functional NetworkManager
that reverts to using 'nscd' rather than caching-nameserver+bind
today, so this should be fixed in a bit, just not "correctly".

Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 20:31:06 UTC
Fedora Core 3 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 FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

It's been so long since I submitted this bug report, that I've upgraded my fc3
system.  So I have no idea if it's still a problem.  I'm running fc4, and I have
not run across it with this release.  I guess you can close it.

Comment 6 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 21:00:06 UTC
Also up2date isn't used in current releases. So closing. Thanks.
