Description Joerg Hinz 2005-04-07 13:05:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/8.0 (Windows NT 5.0; U; en)

Description of problem:
You cannot install mysql because it depends on perl-DBD-MySQL, and you cannot 
install perl-DBD-MySQL because it depends on mysql!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
perl-DBD-MySQL-2.1021-3 mysql-3.23.58-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -i perl-DBD-MySQL
2. rpm -i mysql

Actual Results:  Because of a vice-versa-dependency you cannot install mysql and/or perl-DBD-

Expected Results:  perl-DBD-MySQL should depend on mysql, but mysql should NOT depend on perl-DBD-

Comment 1 Tom Lane 2005-04-07 14:14:06 EDT
The dependency is actually required, though arguably it is in the wrong
subpackage --- see bug #66349.  In the meantime the solution is to install both
packages together.

Fixed in devel tip (4.1.11) --- bug still open for back branches, however.
Comment 5 Joerg Hinz 2005-04-13 08:58:43 EDT
Why don't you fix it in the stable, too?

The solution to install both packages together might work on a manual 
installation, but on a script-driven-installation, where packages are installed 
one by one, you will fail.
Comment 6 Tom Lane 2005-04-13 10:06:37 EDT
As I said, the bug is still open.
Comment 7 Tom Lane 2005-05-13 12:15:54 EDT
Fix pushed into RHEL4 with current update; still an open issue for RHEL3.
Comment 8 Tim Powers 2005-06-09 07:43:04 EDT
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
on the solution and/or where to find the updated files,
please follow the link below. You may reopen this bug report
if the solution does not work for you.

Comment 9 Joerg Hinz 2005-11-10 07:42:21 EST
Will it ever be fixed in RHEL3?
Comment 10 Tom Lane 2005-11-10 11:05:36 EST
Hm, yes, this bug should have been left open.  Thanks for the reminder.

I fear this bug by itself isn't enough to prompt us to turn mysql in RHEL3,
so it will have to wait for something else to come along.  But it should be
open in the meantime so I don't forget when there's an opportunity.
