Description Bill Nottingham 2007-10-26 16:02:12 EDT
Description of problem:

Take a rawhide box, x86_64 with dbus-libs.{i386,x86_64} and dbus.x86_64
installed. Remove them (you'll have to do this by hand.)

Install dbus.{i386,x86_64} from F7.

Run yum upgrade. (Make sure you're pointed somewhere that has dbus-1.1.2-8.fc8)

'Base' yum properly does the upgrade (installs dbus-libs.{i386,x86_64},

If you have yum-skip-broken enabled, even if you don't pass --skip-broken, it
changes the depsolver such that dbus-libs.i386 is not pulled in, and the upgrade

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Seth Vidal 2007-10-26 22:28:50 EDT
does your /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/skip-broken.conf have:

check_always = 1

in it?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2007-10-26 23:47:46 EDT

enabled = 1
check_always = 0
Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2007-10-27 10:11:45 EDT
I can't replicate this and neither can Bill (the reporter) which makes it
unlikely that this is the cause. Closing.
