Description Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2007-11-08 08:28:54 EST
Description of problem:
Log in to RHN and system shows that an update is for
package sysreport. ( Errata RHBA-2007:0692-2 )

Do #yum -y update 
yum exits with No Packages marked for Update/Obsoletion

Do #rpm -qa | grep sysreport
rpm exits with no resault
( package is not installed )

Do #rpm -q --whatprovides sysreport
rpm displays sos-1.7-9.1.el5 

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

How reproducible:
Repeating above commands

Steps to Reproduce:
1.same command as an above
Actual results:
Comes up with nothing

Expected results:
package sysreport being updated.
( or update belonging to sos package )

Additional info:
Manually downloaded package from rhn

did #rpm -Uhv sysreport-1.4.3-13.el5.noarch.rpm
package install, then when I run "yum -y update
Installed: sos.noarch 0:1.7-9.1.el5
Replaced: sysreport.noarch 0:1.4.3-13.el5

Package gets replaced by sos package

Dont know if the problem lies in the sysreport package or in yum/rhn/sos
but I would guess since sysreports belongs to sos the update should applie to
sos package.
Comment 1 Navid Sheikhol-Eslami 2007-11-08 09:00:17 EST
Starting from RHEL5.1, "sos" has replaced and obsoleted "sysreport".

Please see the following KBase article for details:


Yum is automatically resolving the dependencies and replacing any "sysreport"
version with the latest "sos" available for RHEL5.1, this is normal.
