Description John Ellson 2005-12-17 10:45:47 EST
Description of problem:
medor depends on jorm, jorm depends on medor

I suppose rpm can probably handle it, but its bad package design.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -Uvh jorm-2.4.3-1jpp_2fc.1.noarch.rpm
2.rpm -Uvh medor-1.4.4-1jpp_2fc.noarch.rpm
Actual results:
error: Failed dependencies:
        medor is needed by jorm-2.4.3-1jpp_2fc.1.noarch
error: Failed dependencies:
        jorm is needed by medor-1.4.4-1jpp_2fc.noarch

Expected results:
No circular dependencies

Additional info:
Comment 1 Gary Benson 2005-12-22 04:14:03 EST
To install these packages they must both be in the same rpm transaction:

  rpm -Uvh jorm-2.4.3-1jpp_2fc.1.noarch.rpm medor-1.4.4-1jpp_2fc.noarch.rpm

Unfortunatly these versions of jorm and medor are pretty much inextricably
linked: it's not possible to, for example, extract non-medor bits of jorm into a
separate package and use that to build medor because there are no non-medor bits
of jorm (and vice versa: there're no non-jorm bits of medor either).

Deepak Bhole has persuaded the upstream developers to decouple these packages
which they have done.  When Fedora is upgraded to the new versions this
particular circular dependency will go away.

jorm/medor are no longer in Fedora. Closing this one..
