Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-03-09 18:12:03 EST
Description of problem:

When building new packages from time to time rpmbuild seems to create
packages which depend both on "old" and "new" versions of shared libs
but with that package providing only "new" libraries.  Obviously it is
impossible to install such packages in a clean way.  For examples see
bugs #150155 and #150623.  It appears that "automatic dependency
resolution" checks and uses both currently installed libraries and
newly build ones too.

I am not sure if this is a coincidence or some other differences
in a build process but so far I did not see that problem with x86_64
packages but only with their i386 equivalents.

If "rawhide" packages are really build by some other process then
what is responsible for that trouble?

This is no rpm problem. Open bugs against specific packages
if there are linkage problems with both old and new libraries.
