RPMs for RH 7 were downloaded from priority.redhat.com and installed using
rpm -Fvh. The output showing dependencies is shown below. This same
process worked without errors about a month ago. I entered this bug under
glibs but other packages are affected also.
error: failed dependencies:
glibc-common = 2.2 is needed by glibc-2.2-12
/usr/bin/getent is needed by stunnel-3.10-2
libmysqlclient.so.9 is needed by php-mysql-4.0.3pl1-1
If you e.g. look at the errata page, it clearly states that one should
rpm -Uvh glibc-2.2-12* glibc-common-2.2-12*
rpm -Fvh glibc-devel-2.2-12* glibc-profile-2.2-12* nscd-2.2-12*
(glibc was split into glibc and glibc-common, thus rpm -F won't work on it).
