What do these commands say?

rpm -q PyXML
rpm -q --requires system-config-printer-libs | grep PyXML
rpm -V system-config-printer{,-libs}

Comment 2 Callum Benepe 2007-05-23 17:31:53 UTC
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -q PyXML
package PyXML is not installed
[root@localhost ~]# 
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -q --requires system-config-printer-libs | grep PyXML
[root@localhost ~]# 
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -V system-config-printer{,-libs}
Unsatisfied dependencies for system-config-printer-libs- PyXML
[root@localhost ~]#

So how did you install, and how did you update?

Comment 4 Callum Benepe 2007-05-24 15:17:11 UTC
Sorry for the slow reply. Traveled to NYC today, no access to FC7 until tomorrow.
I installed from a i386 DVD, Bittorent download from Fedora Wiki.
I have to admit that I use Yum from the command line because I like to monitor
the update progress.
Pup is good, but when dependency resolution etc.. takes awhile it just looks
frozen. Maybe we could geek Pup out a bit and add an open window option to show
the work in progress?
Kind of like the boot-up option.

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2007-05-24 16:10:43 UTC
Never mind about pros/cons of different tools -- what happened here is that
system-config-printer-libs got installed without one of its dependencies, and so
whichever tool you *did* use did something wrong.  I think you're saying you
used anaconda to install (i.e. the normal way) and yum to upgrade in this
instance, so I'm changing the component to that (anaconda) and reassigning.

Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2007-05-24 17:09:09 UTC
When did you do your install?  There was a point at which this was happening a
while back...

Comment 7 Callum Benepe 2007-05-24 17:51:39 UTC
I downloaded http://torrent.fedoraproject.org/torrents//f7-test4-i386.torrent
(DVD) Tuesday night 5/22 then installed & upgraded yesterday.

Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2007-05-29 17:42:49 UTC
This should be fixed for F7 final

Comment 9 Callum Benepe 2007-05-29 18:25:13 UTC
I've been using Red Hat since 1998, really looking forward to FC7...thanks for
your help and best of luck!
