Description Thomas Cameron 2005-06-09 19:14:08 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050512 Red Hat/1.0.4-1.4.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
I have installed my own RPMs for SpamAssassin.  I added spamassassin* and perl-Mail-SpamAssassin* to the pkgSkipList section of /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date by using up2date --configure --nox.  I verify that the entry is there:

[root@wintermute up2date]# grep -i pkgskip /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date|grep -v comment
pkgSkipList=spamassassin*;perl-Mail-SpamAssassin*;

When I run up2date -u, I get this error:

There was a package dependency problem. The message was:

Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
spamassassin-tools-3.0.4-1 requires perl-Mail-SpamAssassin = 3.0.4-1 

I want up2date to leave these packages alone.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
up2date-4.4.5.6-2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a newer version of an RPM than is in RHN
2. exclude that RPM via up2date --configure
3. run up2date -u
4. cuss when it is not skipped
  

Actual Results:  I get an "Unresolvable chain of dependencies:" error message

Expected Results:  It should skip the packages.

This is not reproducible in my system. Tried with several different packages in
spamassasin and xorg-x11* ones. The ignore list works as expected
Comment 2 Thomas Cameron 2005-06-14 10:10:13 EDT
This is weird - I have reproduced it on two systems here.  One with
SpamAssassin, and one with XMMS.  

*** Please note that these RPMS built from the vendor's web site, *not* the ones
that come with RHEL or up2date. ***

For example, grab http://www.xmms.org/files/1.2.x/rpm/xmms-1.2.10-1.src.rpm, do
rpmbuild --rebuild on it, and remove the Red Hat supplied xmms* packages (this
will require that you uninstall kdenetwork-nowlistening and kdeaddons-xmms if
you have KDE installed).

Now install all of the xmms* packages you get from rebuilding the xmms.org
source RPM.  Add xmms* to your pkgSkipList entry, and then run up2date.

Here's what happens on my system:

[root@ml110 ~]# rpm -q kdeaddons-xmms xmms xmms-devel xmms-flac xmms-skins
kdenetwork-nowlistening
kdeaddons-xmms-3.3.1-2
xmms-1.2.10-9
xmms-devel-1.2.10-9
xmms-flac-1.1.0-7
xmms-skins-1.2.10-9
kdenetwork-nowlistening-3.3.1-2

[root@ml110 ~]# rpm -e kdeaddons-xmms xmms xmms-devel xmms-flac xmms-skins
kdenetwork-nowlistening

[root@ml110 ~]# cd /home/thomas.cameron/redhat/RPMS/i386/
[root@ml110 i386]# rpm -Uvh xmms-*

Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
########################################
RPM package conflict error.  The message was:
Test install failed because of package conflicts:
file /usr/lib/xmms/Output/libALSA.so from install of xmms-1.2.10-9
h file from package xmms-alsa-1.2.10-1
file /usr/lib/xmms/Input/libvorbis.so from install of xmms-1.2.10-
th file from package xmms-vorbis-1.2.10-1

So you see, even though I have excluded xmms* in my up2date config file, it
still tries to install it via up2date.

I can also give you screen scrapes of the same issue with SpamAssassin RPMs
created from the spamassassin.apache.org web site.

Help?
Comment 3 Thomas Cameron 2005-06-18 09:46:49 EDT
OK, please close this ticket.  This is user error, I apologize.  I had set
forceInstall=1 to address an unrelated issue and forgot about it.  Sorry for
wasting the time.
Comment 4 Rahul Sundaram 2005-06-18 16:28:52 EDT
Ok. Good to know. Was getting puzzled over this.  Thank you for the update.
Kindly Close
