Description Wade Mealing 2007-10-24 00:58:09 EDT
Description of problem:

Systemtap and systemtap-runtime RPMS can not be installed at the same time, it
produces the errror:

Transaction Check Error:   file /usr/libexec/systemtap/stp_check from
install of systemtap-runtime-0.5.14-1.el5 conflicts with file from
package systemtap-0.5.12-1.el5

Issue is to remove systemtap before upgrading to 5.1

Comment 1 Don Domingo 2007-10-24 01:25:06 EDT
added to RHEL5.1 release notes updates:


      Installing the systemtap-runtime package will result in a transaction
check error if the systemtap package is already installed. Further, upgrading
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 to 5.1 will also fail if the systemtap package is
already installed.

      As such, remove the systemtap package using the command rpm -e
systemtap-0.5.12-1.e15 before installing systemtap-runtime or performing an upgrade.

please advise if any further revisions are necessary. thanks!

since RHEl5.1 already out the door, closing this bug.
Comment 5 Don Domingo 2008-02-20 18:57:51 EST
adding nmurray to this bug.

Norm, is this bug still in RHEl5.2 (and as such, should we still document it as
"known issue", or is it resolved now?)?

please advise. thanks!

the RHEL5.2 release notes will be dropped to translation on April 15, 2008, at
which point no further additions or revisions will be entertained.
