Description Przemek Klosowski 2006-03-06 21:12:33 UTC
Description of problem:

After upgrading to FC5test3 on an i386 box, and subsequent 'yum update'
against the following repositories 

I get failed ependencies for packages namazu, licq and koffice
I lost the error messages, but namazu depended on perl, licq
on other licq-* components and koffice on koffice-devel.

I tried but failed to force the upgrade by 'yum upgrade koffice-devel'
and similar tricks; in the end, I had to 

rpm -e namazu{,-devel,-cgi} licq{,-kde,-text,-qt,-gnome} koffice{,-i18n,-devel}

and after that 'yum update' seems to be working fine.

Comment 1 Przemek Klosowski 2006-03-07 16:16:25 UTC
on subsequent 'yum update' more Missing Dependency errors:
javamail >=20031006-4 is needed by mx4j-tools
javamail = 20031006-4 is needed by javamail-devel
bcel = 5.0-13 is needed by bcel-devel
jaf = 20030319-4 is needed by jaf-devel
They appear after 'Running transaction check'/'Processing Dependency'/Finished
Dependency Resolution' steps.

I don't currently have javamail installed, but have javamail-devel, for unknown
reasons. Same thing for jaf (have jaf-devel, but no jaf). I have both bcel and
After 'rpm -e jaf-devel javamail-devel mx4j-tools bcel-devel' 'yum update' worked

Comment 2 Przemek Klosowski 2006-03-07 19:35:33 UTC
I tried to reinstall the packages I had to take out to get past the dependencies
problem. koffice is not there, and needs to be replaced by koffice-suite.
jaf-devel javamail-devel mx4j-tools bcel-devel aren't available, and I don't care
about them so I didn't try to find out the new package names.

namazu won't load: the error is (again after transaction check/dependency
resolution steps, 
Error: Missing Dependency: perl(conf.pl) is needed by package namazu
(and four more messages like that, referring to perl(var.pl, time.pl,
document.pl and util.pl). As far as I can tell, this is the same dependency
error that 
prevented an upgrade in the first place.

Comment 3 Akira TAGOH 2006-03-08 04:55:27 UTC
complaining the packages except namazu isn't suitable here. please file a
separate bug if you didn't.

Comment 4 Akira TAGOH 2006-03-09 03:41:34 UTC
should be fixed in 2.0.15-3.fc5
