Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 247609
kmod packages have broken dependencies
Last modified: 2008-04-03 02:58:33 EDT
Description of problem:
rpm automagic dependency scripts create lots of "ksym(foo)" dependendencies for
kmod-* packages. Nobody provides these dependencies though.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Ah. The kernel package used to provide ABI deps, but davej et al wanted it off
in Fedora - I guess that's caused this breakage (weird nobody filed this bug
before). I can disable the ksym dep generation on F7.
Just disabling is probably the best. Making the kernel rpm provide all symbols
via ksym() generates an insane big list I guess ...
See also bug 247607 while you are busy updating the package ;)
Ah ok. Yeah.
Oops, this one fell on the floor. I'm going to check and update r-r-c shortly.
In F-9 the find-requires script won't call find-requires.ksyms. But we probably
want a better solution that allows for the kernel to have these kABI deps too.
