Description Wenzhuo Zhang 2000-11-29 03:12:31 UTC
These four packages in ftp://updates.redhat.com/6.2 have the rpmlib
rpmlib(VersionedDependencies) <= 3.0.3-1
which, I think, is wrong.

rpmlib(VersionedDependencies) <= 3.0.3-1
--> php-imap-3.0.17-1.6.2.i386.rpm
rpmlib(VersionedDependencies) <= 3.0.3-1
--> php-ldap-3.0.17-1.6.2.i386.rpm
rpmlib(VersionedDependencies) <= 3.0.3-1
--> php-manual-3.0.17-1.6.2.i386.rpm
rpmlib(VersionedDependencies) <= 3.0.3-1
--> php-pgsql-3.0.17-1.6.2.i386.rpm

This causes dependancy problems when installing redhat from a cdrom with
all the updates merged in. The installation program says the four packages
haven't been selected when doing dependancy checking, even on a full

It's correct. That dependency is satisfied by the errata rpm RPM.

Comment 2 Wenzhuo Zhang 2000-11-30 13:57:32 UTC
Why do those four packages require RPMLIB VERSION 3.03 OR EARLIER? Also, as I
remember, the stock redhat 6.2 ships with rpm 3.04, which obviously doesn't
satisfy the php packages' dependacies.

Well, it doesn't matter much. But it makes makes the installation from an
updated redhat CD a little bit ugly.

Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-11-30 14:56:24 UTC
The updated package of RPM 3.0.5 itself is also available in the same directory
.  The specific way RPM prints out the dependency syntax (the "<=" isn't stored
in the database, it's a bitfield with one bit for "<" and one bit for "=") is
more than I know about RPM's internals, though.
Please check the errata notice at
http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/RHEA-2000-051-01.html for more details.

Comment 4 Wenzhuo Zhang 2000-12-01 02:58:55 UTC
It looks that the problem is caused by the installer not being able to recognize
the rpmlib dependancies. If the new updates require rpmlib dependancy, why don't
you upgrade the installers too? It's a compatibility issue.
