Description Igor Jagec 2006-06-07 02:48:02 EDT
Description of problem:

# yum update
--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Dependency: libecal-1.2.so.3 for package: gnome-panel
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: libecal-1.2.so.3 is needed by package gnome-panel

[root@munja dict]# locate libecal-1.2.so.3

# rpm -qf /usr/lib/libecal-1.2.so.3
Comment 1 Peter Bieringer 2006-06-07 05:32:29 EDT
Prio should be set to high, because yum update is broken now on at least 3
systems here. Looks like a deadlock, can't be solved easily.

# rpm -q evolution-data-server

# rpm -ql evolution-data-server | grep libecal-

# rpm -q gnome-panel

# wget http://url-to/evolution-data-server-1.6.2-1.fc5.1.i386.rpm

# LANG=C rpm -Fhv evolution-data-server-1.6.2-1.fc5.1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        libecal-1.2.so.3 is needed by (installed) gnome-panel-2.14.1-1.fc5.1.i386

# rpm -qlp evolution-data-server-1.6.2-1.fc5.1.i386.rpm | grep libecal-


Oroblem is caused by evolution-data-server-1.6.2-1.fc5.1 in update repository,
which includes a newer libecal than gnome-panel in update is linked to.

Why hasn't this detected by QA?

Result: automatic yum update of *all* clients is currenty broken, even security

Please fix this as soon as possible, either by removing
evolution-data-server-1.6.2-1.fc5.1.i386.rpm from update repository or push a
gnome-panel into repository, which is linked against .

*Manual* workaround:
# yum update --exclude evolution-data-server

@gor Jagec: please increase severity/priority
