Description Marcel Hild 2007-05-24 12:05:34 UTC
this happens on a freshly installed rhel4 system.

[root@vpsmuc160 rhn]# up2date --show-channel

[root@vpsmuc160 rhn]# up2date -i tomcat5

Name                                    Version        Rel     
tomcat5                                 5.5.23         0jpp_4rh.3        noarch

Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
There was a package dependency problem. The message was:

Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
tomcat5-common-lib-5.5.23-0jpp_4rh.3     requires jta >= 0:1.0.1 

Interstingly the requires and provides seem to be there, if I look in RHN. Maybe
RHN metadata is defunct.
If you install jta and then tomcat5, it works.

This is an urgent problem for one of our ISVs

Any news on this? It's still not possible to install tomcat5 using the up2date
installation method.

Comment 2 Ben Stringer 2007-07-19 05:36:38 UTC
I am also seeing this problem. Installing jta first does not work for me as a 
work-around - up2date returns "There was a fatal RPM error. The message was: 
Failed running rpm transaction".

O/S: RHEL AS4 update 5
Java: IBM 1.4.2 SR8

Comment 3 Ben Stringer 2007-07-23 05:38:46 UTC
The dependency appears to be satisfied by installing the following package: 
Once this package was installed, an installation of the package "tomcat5" was 
This provides me with a way forward, but still indicates a dependency error, as 
up2date should have done all of this for me.

Comment 16 David Walluck 2008-05-06 18:42:37 UTC
The fix has been applied, but RHAPS is in security-fix-only mode. Since this bug
is not critical, the fix will be pushed out with the next security update.

Comment 29 David Knox 2010-09-15 15:14:15 UTC
RHAPS tomcat5 is no longer supported. ( RHEL-4-RHAPS-V2 ). The build is currently tagged tomcat5-5.5.23-0jpp_4rh.
