Possible versioning problem in recent hpijs RPM causing dependency conflicts
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:20 EST
Description of problem:
hpijs-0.9.7-4.2 was recently released as a Fedora Core 4 update. First of all,
the version of hpijs that originally came with FC4 was hpijs-1.7.1-3. So I'm
left wondering, why is the version number of hpijs going backward? Second of
all, however, if I run up2date -u, I get the following:
There was a package dependency problem. The message was:
Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
foomatic-3.0.2-19 conflicts with hpijs < 1.5
That is, foomatic-3.0.2-19 cannot co-exist with a version of hpijs that is less
that 1.5. Since this version of foomatic actually comes with Fedora Core, it
seems like there is a versioning problem around here somewhere, but I don't know
if the issue is with hpijs, or if foomatic also needs to be updated as well to
allow this "new" version.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.7.1-3 or 0.9.7-4.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Find an FC4 machine with foomatic-3.0.2-19 and hpijs-1.7.1-3 installed.
2.run up2date -u
up2date displays the error message given above and does nothing.
up2date should not complain and should update packages.
