Description Christopher McCrory 2006-09-07 14:02:40 EDT
Description of problem:

apr-util needs postgresql libs

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install apr-util
Actual results:
Processing Dependency: libpq.so.4 for package: apr-util

Expected results:
NOT Processing Dependency: libpq.so.4 for package: apr-util

Additional info:

It does not make sense why apr would need postgresql
Comment 1 Bojan Smojver 2007-01-10 18:20:47 EST
Actually, it does make sense. APU includes a PostgreSQL DBD driver, which needs
libraries to work.

This should be closed as not a bug.
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2007-01-10 18:29:20 EST
This does need fixing.  I have a patch to do DBD-drivers-as-DSOs almost ready to
submit upstream.  That will allow splitting out the drivers into subpackages,
and so relaxing the deps chain a bit.

(this isn't likely to happen in the RHEL5 timescale unfortunately)

yes, as far as it goes.

I think the bug is that to install apache (httpd) you should not need postgress

Comment 5 Joe Orton 2007-04-11 08:46:04 EDT
Is the specific concern here the fact that the libs get pulled in at run-time,
or simply the fact that the deps get pulled in at all.

The former is possible to fix - the latter is not really possible to fix in a
RHEL5 update, since it will be a compatibility break (albeit a minor one).  It
is fixed for FC7/future RHEL now.
Comment 6 Bojan Smojver 2008-12-01 18:08:45 EST
Can we close this?
Comment 7 Joe Orton 2008-12-18 07:51:37 EST
So, because we can't fix this in a RHEL5 update, since it would potentially break existing installations, marking as CLOSED->NEXTRELEASE since the fix in Fedora will be picked up in RHEL6.  Thanks for the report, in any case!
