This still isn't fixed, and I really don't think it is a comps issue, I believe
it is a problem with the openoffice.org2 spec file.

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

Unresolvable chain of dependencies:

The following packages were added to your selection to satisfy dependencies:

Some multilib issues relating to oo.org2 were fixed, but this one was not. It
cannot easily be fixed because the remaining multilib dependencies are a can of

The problem is only encountered if you try to install the
openoffice.org2-emailmerge or openoffice.org2-pyuno subpackages. I recommend you
only install the oo.org packages that you need and not "openoffice.org2*".
Comment 6 Colin Coe 2008-10-05 23:03:55 EDT
When trying to install openoffice.org2-writer at build time (via ks.cfg) you are told that the package does not exist even though 'up2date --showall --show-channels | grep openoffice.org2-writer' reports

This is EL4u7 (x86_64).

comps.xml makes no reference to any openoffice.org2 packages.

Comment 7 Mike McLean 2008-10-06 17:10:56 EDT
In EL4 openoffice.org2 is an rhn-only tech preview. It is not included on the installation media.
