Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-03-18 19:44:09 EST
Description of problem:

Package python-2.4-6.i386.rpm vanished from (well, never showed up in) x86_64 
packages and does not look so far that it is coming back.  There is a catch.

# rpm -e --test python.i386
error: Failed dependencies:
	libpython2.4.so.1.0 is needed by (installed)

'openoffice' is still there so python.i386 cannot be de-installed.  OTOH
yum refuses to update only x86_64 python packages.  Maybe this is a problem
in yum but one ends up with:

---> Package python-devel.x86_64 0:2.4-6 set to be updated
---> Package python.x86_64 0:2.4-6 set to be updated
Error: Unable to satisfy dependencies
Error: Package python-devel needs python < 2.4-6, this is not available.

Adding python-2.4-6.i386.rpm to the mix allows to proceed with updates.
In any case it is needed if we do not want to get out of sync.

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

I cannot seem to find a trace of openoffice.org-libs-1.1.3-6.7.0.i386 - but the
requirement on libpython is weird. Can you please paste the output of:

rpm -qi openoffice.org-libs
Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2005-04-07 20:46:21 EDT
That package in the meantime got superceded by redone in a different way
packages from openoffice.org-1.9.89 series and 'openoffice.org-pyuno',
which now provides Python bindings, does seem to be satisfied by
an existence of 'python.x86_64'.  I am not entirely sure if this is indeed
correct but at this moment there are no complaints about missing

OTOH on FC3 installation, where openoffice.org-libs-1.1.3-9.5.0.fc3 still does
exitst, a command 'rpm -qR openoffice.org-libs | grep py' prints:


although there both of these are supplied by openoffice.org-libs itself
and a dependency on /usr/lib/libpython2.* does not seem to be present.
Comment 3 Mihai Ibanescu 2005-04-08 10:10:35 EDT
OK, please feel free to reopen this bug if it still occurs.
Comment 4 Michal Jaegermann 2005-04-11 14:49:40 EDT
The final irony is that openoffice.org-pyuno-1.9.89-5 has python.i386 in its
requirements and corresponding packages showed up in x86_64 set again. :-)
