root(2)@ironclad Raw]# rpm -Uhv linuxconf-*1.14r4-3.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
        redhat-release   is needed by linuxconf-1.14r4-3

redhat-release isn't on the rawhide server.  I remember a
couple weeks ago when I first installed rawhide the
installation had failed on redhat-release since the file
wasn't there, but I had assumed that was because this was
rawhide, and the redhat-release was left in the packages to
install list by accident (not a worry to me since I saw
rawhide-release be installed).

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-04-20 05:56:59 UTC
this is fixed in a later rawhide-release package. :)

Comment 2 Jay Freeman 1999-05-05 22:08:59 UTC
OK, I figured part of the problem out, it seems that linuxconf has to
be installed WITH rawhide-release (as in at the same time, after is a
no go) for it to install properly.  Here is what I did earlier:

[root(3)@ironclad RPMs]# rpm -Uhv rawhide-release-1.3.5-1.noarch.rpm
rawhide-release
##################################################
[root(3)@ironclad RPMs]# rpm -Uhv linuxconf*-1.14r4-4.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
        redhat-release   is needed by linuxconf-1.14r4-4
[root(3)@ironclad RPMs]# rpm -q --whatprovides redhat-release
rawhide-release-1.3.5-1
[root(3)@ironclad RPMs]# rpm -e rawhide-release
[root(3)@ironclad RPMs]# inst linuxconf*-1.14r4-4.i386.rpm rawhide-
release-1.3.5-1.noarch.rpm
rawhide-release

Comment 3 Jay Freeman 1999-05-05 22:12:59 UTC
OUCH, and get THIS:

[root(4)@ironclad /etc]# rpm -V linuxconf
Unsatisfied dependencies for linuxconf-1.14r4-4: redhat-release
.M...... c /etc/conf.linuxconf
<took really long time and cancelled at this point>

Comment 4 Cristian Gafton 1999-06-16 15:08:59 UTC
assigned to notting. rawhide-reklese should obsolete and provide
redhat-release (based on versions numbers...)

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-23 22:23:59 UTC
you can't do that with the current version of RPM; you can
only provide 'redhat-release', not 'redhat-release = some-version'.

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 1999-07-06 15:03:59 UTC
*** Bug 3878 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

error: failed dependencies:
        redhat-release   is needed by linuxconf-1.14r4-4
 rawhide-release-1.4.2-1.noarch.rpm
linuxconf-1.14r4-4.i386.rpm

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 1999-07-13 22:06:59 UTC
Actually, it seems to be an RPM problem.

linuxconf *prerequires* redhat-release (no version).
rawhide-release provides redhat-release, but this
isn't satisfying the dependency. Jeff, any ideas?

Comment 8 Jeff Johnson 1999-07-22 18:26:59 UTC
The linuxconf prereq prevented the dependency from being resolved
by the provides in rawhide-release.

rpm-3.0.3-0.7 with versioned provides support should fix this problem.
