Description Lamont Peterson 2005-07-15 14:42:12 EDT
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): 
How reproducible: 
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 
openssh-askpass installed 
2.  Try to install openssh-askpass 
3.  Read dependency error. 
Actual results: 
Installation fails because of missing pegged dependency. 
Expected results: 
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.
Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2005-07-15 17:31:39 EDT
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
something similar.
