Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1462179
Missing depdencies allows mismatch in architecture for nss and p11-kit versions
Last modified: 2017-09-25 00:57:40 EDT
Description of problem:
It's possible to install nss in both 32 and 64-bit versions, but no dependency exists to ensure matching architecture of p11-kit is also installed.
# rpm -q nss p11-kit-trust
# update-ca-trust enable
update-ca-trust: nss 32 bit is installed. You should install p11-kit-trust 32 bit.
update-ca-trust: aborting, because the nss / p11-kit setup is inconsistent.
ca-certificates package depends on p11-kit-trust, but any of the two builds (32 or 64bit) satisfies the dependency.
Customer expects appropriate dependencies between packages so that it's not possible to end up with an inconsistent set of packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Possible to have 32-bit version of nss without matching version of p11-kit.
Installation of 32-bit nss should result in install of required 32-bit p11-kit.
