Description Nate Straz 2007-04-17 20:33:35 UTC
Description of problem:

I was trying to install everything in the cluster tarball from cfeist and I hit
the following error:

Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
ricci  0.9.1-6                           requires libmagic.so.1()(64bit)

It appears that ricci is 64 bit but libmagic (from the file rpm) is not.

I think this means that customers will not be able to use Conga to configure
ppc nodes.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install base RHEL on ppc64
2. up2date --installall=cluster
Actual results:
See Above

Expected results:
ricci should install.

Need this in 4.5 release.  QE has machines to use for figuring the problem out.
 Nate will provide machine name.

Comment 5 Ryan McCabe 2007-04-24 20:58:56 UTC
I think this is a bug in the dependency resolver (or something in that area):

[root@kent ~]# up2date --whatprovides="libmagic.so.1"

[root@kent ~]# up2date --whatprovides="libmagic.so.1()(64bit)"
[root@kent ~]# 

Other 64-bit libraries that ricci needs are accounted for correctly e.g.,

[root@kent ~]# up2date --whatprovides="libcrypto.so.4()(64bit)"

If I manually install the ppc64 "file" package (file-4.10-3.EL4.5.ppc64.rpm),
I'm able to run up2date successfully, and I get this output from rpm:

[root@newport SPECS]# rpm -q --provides file-4.10-3.EL4.5.ppc64
file = 4.10-3.EL4.5

Is there someone around who's more familiar with the build system who might know
how to go about getting this fixed?

Comment 6 Ryan McCabe 2007-04-30 18:42:57 UTC
Closing as NOTABUG--we're going to build 32-bit. 64-bit packages aren't supported.

Comment 7 Nate Straz 2007-04-30 19:54:25 UTC
It's still a bug that we don't have ppc packages that install.  We need to be
able track that this problem is fixed.  I don't see how this could possibly be

Comment 8 Ryan McCabe 2007-05-02 01:16:18 UTC
In the 0.9.1-8 build, the ppc64 arch is excluded. This should adequately work
around the problem, provided that the right bits make it to RHN.
