openssh-askpass package not updated & depends on openssh
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:10 EST
Description of problem:
Installation of openssh-askpass (w/yum, etc.) fails because the base package
depends on openssh of the same version. Errata have been released but not all
(sub-)packages were built, including openssh-askpass.
As the openssh-askpass (erroneously?) depends on the openssh package of the
same version, yum/rpm does not want to in stall the package from base, as an
errata for the depended upon package already exists and is, of course, already
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install FC4 w/openssh but without openssh-askpass, update openssh and try to
"yum install openssh-askpass".
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have openssh installed and errata applied on FC4 and do not have
2. Try to install openssh-askpass
3. Read dependency error.
Installation fails because of missing pegged dependency.
There should either be an errata of the openssh-askpass package which matches
the openssh package or (even better) the openssh-askpass package should not be
pegged to a specific version of the openssh package.
This package update was released normally with all subpackages including
openssh-askpass - look at
In every arches there is openssh-askpass-4.1p1-3.1 package.
This must have been some glitch on a mirror you use for downloading updates or
