Description Christopher Stone 2005-07-08 17:59:43 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
rpm sees any unversioned dep as being able to fill ANY versioned requirement.
package foo provides  bar    but package baz requires bar > 2.0
rpm doesnt see that as a problem 
ackage-cleanup  is misdiagnosing  unversioned provides  when a versioned required is requested


Package redhat-artwork requires redhat-logos >= 1.1.10
Package subversion requires perl(Getopt::Long) >= 2.25

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.package-cleanup --problems

Actual Results:  Package redhat-artwork requires redhat-logos >= 1.1.10

Expected Results:  No problems.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Jef Spaleta 2005-07-08 18:07:46 EDT
Just to elaborate.
For the Package redhat-artwork requires redhat-logos >= 1.1.10  error on fc4

rpm -q --provides fedora-logos
redhat-logos    <--------- unversioned
fedora-logos = 1.1.31-1

rpm -q --requires redhat-artwork    <------------ versioned
redhat-logos >= 1.1.22

A simple test of how rpm actually handles this version/unversioned mismatch
rpm -e --nodeps redhat-artwork
rpm -ivv redhat-artwork-0.122-10.i386.rpm  2> /tmp/install.log

from the install.log:
D:  Requires: redhat-logos >= 1.1.22                        YES (db provides)

rpm -q --whatprovides redhat-logos

fedora-logos package is the only thing providing redhat-logos and rpm sees the
unversioned provides as filling the versioned requires.

upgrade to yum 2.3.3 or above and tell me if the above issue goes away.

Comment 3 Christopher Stone 2006-03-21 03:56:14 EST
I don't know if this was actually fixed, but package-cleanup --problems seems to
be working fine now.
Comment 4 Christian Iseli 2007-01-19 18:47:50 EST
FC3 and FC4 have now been EOL'd.

Please check the ticket against a current Fedora release, and either adjust the
release number, or close it if appropriate.


Your friendly BZ janitor :-)

According to #3, it package-cleanup was working.
