Description Rex Dieter 2007-08-01 16:00:29 EDT
Kinda similar to bug #246078 , but I'm seeing this not on x86_64 multilib, but
on i386.

$ rpm -q yum
yum-3.2.2-1.fc7.noarch

Short story,
kdesdk Requires: perl(DCOP)

perl(DCOP) = 0.01
is provided by both
kdebindings-3.5.6
kdebindings-dcopperl-3.5.7
(it was moved into a separate pkg on update).

Problem:
yum install kdesdk
pulls in kdebindings-3.5.6
not necessarily bad/wrong (yet).

But now,
yum update
...
Resolving Dependencies
--> Running transaction check
...
---> Package kdebindings.i386 0:3.5.7-1.fc7.1 set to be updated
...
--> Processing Dependency: perl(DCOP) for package: kdesdk
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Unresolveable requirement perl(DCOP) for kdesdk

Ugh.  Would be preferred (from my pov) if yum would have found/pulled in
kdebindings-dcopperl-3.5.7 to satisfy perl(DCOP).

Any suggestions?

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2007-08-14 12:19:51 EDT
I suppose renaming kdebindings-dcopperl -> perl-DCOP would take advantage of
yum's shortest-length feature to help here.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2007-08-15 09:19:14 EDT
OK, creepy today, yum installs without failure, albeit not exactly what I want
to happen:

$ sudo yum install kdesdk
...
Resolving Dependencies
--> Running transaction check
---> Package kdesdk.i386 0:3.5.7-7.fc7 set to be updated
--> Processing Dependency: perl(DCOP) for package: kdesdk
--> Restarting Dependency Resolution with new changes.
--> Running transaction check
---> Package kdebindings.i386 0:3.5.6-1.fc7 set to be updated
---> Package kdesdk.i386 0:3.5.7-7.fc7 set to be updated
...

I end up with kdebindings-3.5.6 instead of the preferred kdebindings-dcopperl-3.5.7.

oh duh, problem is mostly as originally described, initial install works, 'yum
update' fails, but today I get a traceback.
yum update -d 9 log attachment coming...

Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2007-08-23 08:20:19 EDT
I can confirm Yum 3.2.3 (as announced on yum-devel list yesterday) fixes this,
for the most part.

$ yum install kdesdk
(still) installs kdesdk-3.5.7 (good) and kdebindings-3.5.6 (not preferred, oh well).

The good news is that
$ yum update
works (no crash/traceback), to upgrade/install to
kdebindings-3.5.7 + kdebindings-dcopperl-3.5.7
Comment 8 Rex Dieter 2007-08-27 08:24:22 EDT
$ rpm -q yum
yum-3.2.3-1.fc7.noarch
works too (currently in updates-testing).

good 'nuf for me, closing->errata
