Description of problem:
When trying to install abiword-2.0.12-9 from the FC3 updates, "rpm" notifies about failed dependencies which is pretty normal:
error: Failed dependencies:
aiksaurus-gtk >= 1.2.1 is needed by abiword-2.0.12-9.i386
libAiksaurus-1.2.so.0 is needed by abiword-2.0.12-9.i386
libAiksaurusGTK-1.2.so.0 is needed by abiword-2.0.12-9.i386
libgda-2.so.1 is needed by abiword-2.0.12-9.i386
libgnomedb >= 1.0.4 is needed by abiword-2.0.12-9.i386
libgnomedb-2.so.3 is needed by abiword-2.0.12-9.i386
libots-1.so.0 is needed by abiword-2.0.12-9.i386
libwpd-1.so.7 is needed by abiword-2.0.12-9.i386
The surprising thing is that libgda-1.0.4-3.rhel4 simply does not exist among the available RHEL4 packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install abiword-2.0.12-9.
2. Check error message issued by "rpm".
Actual Results: "rpm" tells which packages need to be installed to resolve failed dependencies including the not existing "libgda-1.0.4-3.rhel4" package.
Expected Results: "rpmdb-redhat" should suggest existing packages only. The "libgda-1.0.4-3" does exist (without the "rhel4" suffix though) as part of FC3.
A couple of missing RPMs seem to have been dropped for the final RHEL4 release. As of RHEL4B2 (Nahant), e.g. libgda-1.0.4-3 and libgnomedb-1.0.4 were still part of the "distro".
I suspect they were dropped because nothing in RHEL4 depended on them. Will
have to check into why rpmdb-redhat thinks that the package is included in the

Long since fixed or doesn't matter anymore.
