dhcpv6-client doesn't obsolete dhcpv6_client-0.10-44.fc7
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:18 EST
Description of problem:
The latest Fedora 7 version of dhcpv6_client is dhcpv6_client-0.10-44.fc7. In
the newer version the underscore was replaced with a dash and the Obsolete tag
was added. Unfortunatelly, not correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Fedora 7
2. $ yum --enablerepo=development install dhcpv6-client
Transaction Check Error:
file /sbin/dhcp6c from install of dhcpv6-client-0.10-50.fc8 conflicts with
file from package dhcpv6_client-0.10-44.fc7
The Obsolete clause currently reads:
Obsoletes: dhcpv6_client <= 0.10-44
which doesn't match the Fedora 7 version, probably due to the .fc7 dist tag:
[root@richman ~]# yum provides 'dhcpv6_client <= 0.10-44'
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
fedora 100% |=========================| 2.1 kB 00:00
primary.sqlite.bz2 100% |=========================| 3.8 MB 00:07
dhcpv6_client.i386 0.10-42.fc7 fedora
dhcpv6_client <= 0.10-44
dhcpv6_client.i386 0.10-42.fc7 installed
Provides-match: dhcpv6_client <= 0.10-44
Anyways, pining an Obsolete to a specific version is not a good idea, as it
prevents updates of the package in older distribution. An unversioned Obsolete
tag would do:
This prevents upgrade from FC7 to FC8 with yum.
Thanks for the report, fixing this in rawhide. I did rename the package to
remove the underscore because I hate underscores in package names. I've changed
it so dhcpv6-client obsoletes dhcpv6_client without the nvr info.
