Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 318231
php failed to start because of missing aspell
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:17 EST
Description of problem:
after upgrade to fedora 7 the apache httpd was not working, because of a missing
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fc6
2. (deinstall aspell - not sure about this)
3. upgrade to fedora 7
4. try to start apache httpd
apache did not start, because php lib hat unresolved dependency
apache should start, php should not depend on aspell or aspell should be
installed during upgrade
Was this an anaconda update? Did you --force the removal of aspell before
Please attach the /root/anaconda.log.
Sorry, I mixed this up with another installation.
This error was on a fresh installed fedora 7 box, where I tried to remove some
packages via the "pirut" software management application and I did not force
removal of the packages.
So at the installation all deps have been resolved and aspell has been
installed. After reboot I decided to clean up a bit and removed aspell without
forcing it, after that the httpd did not start, because the php module crashed
Without a precise reproduction case there isn't much we can do here.
Can you restore the original system state, then reproduce by doing:
rpm -qa > before
# some action
rpm -qa > after
and show "php" is still installed by aspell is missing.
Sorry, it can not be reproduced.
rpm -qa ...
run pirut, change to "list" tab, deselect aspell and aspell-en and click on "apply"
On Sep 26th, this has been successful and aspell was deinstalled, but php remained.
Today, pirut complained about missing deps and failed to deinstall aspell and
aspell-en without removing php and php-cli
Don't know, what it was, but I had this situation - my log files prove this to me.
Without a reproduction case unfortunately there is little more that can be done.
