Description of problem:
When running up2date or yum against a freshly installed FC4 distro, rpm fails to install hpijs-0.9.7-4.2.i386.rpm due to requirement in foomatic-3.0.2-19.i386.rpm for "hpijs version > 1.5".
The distr includes hpijs-1.7.1-3.i386.rpm but apparently the version number of the hpijs-0.9.7 package is for a newer release.
Perhaps this should be reported as a bug in the foomatic RPM instead of hpijs?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
hpijs-1.7.1-3.i386.rpm, hpijs-0.9.7-4.2.i386.rpm, foomatic-3.0.2-19.i386.rpm
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC4
2. Run up2date
3. Select "hpijs" as the package to upgrade (note that several other packages also have problems updating due to dependencies on older kernels)
Actual Results: Unresolvable package dependencies message from up2date, apparently due to backward change in hpijs version numbers and old dependencies in the distributed foomatic package.
Expected Results: There should be a new foomatic RPM that incorporates the changes in hpijs versioning.
I need to get feedback about the updates-testing foomatic package, so that I can
release it as a proper update.
