Description of problem:
An update to wireless-tools-28-0.pre4.1.fc3 was just released, but it
won't install alongside the above version of NetworkManager due to
this dependency.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to latest wireless-tools with latest NetworkManager installed
2. Update to latest wireless-tools and attempt to install latest


Actual Results:  Violated dependency.

Running up2date results in this error after dep resolving is attempted

There was a package dependency problem.  The message was:

Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
NetworkManager  0.3.3-1.cvs20050112.1.fc requires libiw.so.27
kdenetwork  3.3.1-1                      requires libiw.so.27

Please modify your package selections and try again.

Comment 2 Jim Cornette 2005-01-18 01:39:22 UTC
wireless tools is the package that is failing to be installed.

Comment 3 Matthew Saltzman 2005-01-18 01:46:19 UTC
Looks like there needs to be a bug filed agains kdenetwork also.  

# rpm -q --redhatrequires libiw.so.27

These will both need to be updated to install them with the latest

NetworkManager is being rebuilt against libiw.so.28 and should be out by tomorrow.

I hope I'm not missing something, but for me the new NetworkManager
still doen't work...

Comment 10 Dan Williams 2005-01-25 02:00:20 UTC
miji piji:

Why didn't you answer "y" when it asked to upgrade wireless-tools? 
That's the required verison for NetworkManager currently...

Comment 11 Matthew Saltzman 2005-01-25 02:29:22 UTC
But the latest FC3 version of wireless-tools is
wireless-tools-28-0.pre4.1.fc3.  That's what led me to file the bug in
the first place.

BTW, using up2date, I don't get a chance to do anything to
wireless-tools if I am running the latest:

[mjs]$ up2date NetworkManager
using mirror: http://ftp.uni-koeln.de/fedora/3/i386/os/

There was a package dependency problem. The message was:

[mjs]$ rpm -q wireless-tools

Comment 12 Matthew Saltzman 2005-01-25 04:15:21 UTC
Re: Comment #11.

Never mind... I see the confusion about the latest wireless-tools.

Comment 13 Dan Williams 2005-01-25 12:49:50 UTC
Technically, the wireless-tools-28 update got pulled from FC3, but is
still in devel/rawhide.  If its installed on your system you'll
probably have to rpm -e wireless-tools --nodeps, and then 'yum install
wireless-tools' again.  Sorry for the confusion...


Comment 14 miji piji 2005-01-25 17:14:33 UTC
it looks more like this is a yum problem.

have you see bug 144376 ?



Comment 15 miji piji 2005-01-25 17:26:12 UTC
Re: Comment #10

well I did not answer yes because when i do that there is conflicts
with the installed version of wireless-tools. which is wireless-tools-28.

You said that NetworkManager was being rebuilt against libiw.so.28. is
this still true? Because I guess this would solve the problem, or not?


Comment 16 Matthew Saltzman 2005-01-25 20:31:02 UTC
Re: Comment 15:  See comment #13.  Your version of wireless-tools is
newer than the official released version.  That was my problem and why
this bug is here.  wireless-tools-28 was removed after you and I
updated to it and replaced by a later wireless-tools-27.  If you
downgrade your wireless-tools to the current release, NetworkManager
will install.

Re: Comment 14: There *is* a Yum problem that was revealed by this
particular dependency chain, but this bug is here because the
dependency chain itself was a problem when wireless-tools-28 appeared
to be the current release.  People couldn't upgrade to
wireless-tools-28 if NetworkManager was installed and couldn't install
NetworkManager if wireless-tools-28 was installed.

The particular conflict is moot now, but the possibility of a conflict
in the future is an issue.  If wireless-tools is updated,
NetworkManager must be updated with it.

Comment 17 miji piji 2005-01-25 21:56:50 UTC
Thanks for this clear explanation. everything went back to normal now.


Comment 18 Dan Williams 2005-01-29 21:49:04 UTC
Should be fixed by now?

Comment 19 Matthew Saltzman 2005-01-29 22:51:31 UTC
Well, the Rawhide version requires libiw.so.28, and wireless-tools-28
is  in Rawhide, but there are some other dependencies in NM now that
prevent it from being updated easily (notably dbus=0.23).  So I can't
try that version yet.

But the downgrade of wireless-tools to 27 in Updates solves the
immediate problem.
