Description Jonathan Kamens 2007-07-25 04:13:40 EDT
When I try to do "yum update" against the development repo, I get this during
the update transaction:

ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve:
Package vixie-cron conflicts with sysklogd < 1.4.1.

and then the transaction aborts there, i.e., no update actually happens.

Note that I have rsyslog-1.17.1-1.fc8 installed and do *not* have sysklogd

Note also that it does not appear that yum is actually trying to update vixie-cron.

There is no sysklogd installed, so there is no conflict between vixie-cron and
sysklogd < 1.4.1.

My guess is that sysklogd gets pulled into the transaction set through the
vixie-cron dependency on virtual "syslog" provide or something like that. Please
check yum output carefully (or attach the full output of the update attempt)...

rsyslog in rawhide yesterday has a bogus provides that's causing this; it's been
fixed and built, but rawhide today died during the compose
