Comment 1 Christopher Blizzard 2001-03-07 14:35:38 EST
Was it installed before the mozilla package was?  Jeff, didn't you fix this
ordering bug in rpm?  That -14 rpm is the most recent and uses Prereq: not
Requires: so it should be working.
Comment 2 Christopher Blizzard 2001-03-07 14:36:02 EST
Also the same as 23466.  I'll mark it once Jeff answers.
Comment 3 Joshua Jensen 2001-03-07 15:58:07 EST
Yes, the psm package was installed far before the other mozilla packages.
Comment 4 Christopher Blizzard 2001-03-07 17:06:39 EST
Flinging over the fence to jbj since it's an rpm feature.
Comment 5 Jeff Johnson 2001-03-08 08:28:44 EST
The order should be mozilla first, mozilla-psm, the ordering can be verified by
	rpm -Uvv mozilla-psm* mozilla* --test
and looking for
	D: ========== tsorting packages
	D:     0 (1,1) mozilla-0.7-14
	D: ========== successors only (presentation order)
	D:     1 (1,2) mozilla-psm-0.7-14
Note that mozilla has been sorted before mozilla-psm even though the
packages were given in the opposite order.

Installing all mozilla packages works for me.
Comment 6 Joshua Jensen 2001-03-08 09:24:29 EST
I'm not sure if you mean "fixed post-RC2" or not, but I can guarantee that in
RC2 mozilla-psm installs per /tmp/install.log on line 93, and the other two
mozilla packages install on line 200-and-something.  This fact along with the
mozilla-psm error in install.log indicates to me that there IS a problem, at
least in RC2.
Comment 7 Jeff Johnson 2001-03-08 09:42:48 EST
I just checked with brock and confirmed that the problem is present RC2.
there are 2 changes in rpm that I suspect have not filtered out yet that fix the

Reopening until brock confirms problem is fixed in RCn.
Comment 8 Jeff Johnson 2001-03-08 14:10:14 EST
Verified as still present Right Now.

This is an anaconda issue, as anaconda has a precomputed package ordering these
days to avoid cdrom mount flip-flops, msw has gory details. Changing component.
Comment 9 Glen Foster 2001-03-09 18:28:36 EST
This defect considered MUST-FIX (show-stopper) for Florence Gold
Comment 10 Matt Wilson 2001-03-12 14:54:47 EST
Huh?  I just use the ordering that RPM gives me.  What version of RPM is
installed in the buildroot?  Seems to be 0.28.  Should I put 0.41 in there?
Comment 11 Matt Wilson 2001-03-12 15:27:58 EST
I installed the latest RPM in the buildroot.  Here's the order around
