Description Jan Pazdziora 2007-11-29 07:06:35 EST
Description of problem:

I've built myself ISO today. It contains

# ls -la RPMS/perl-Frontier-RPC-*
-r--r--r--  1 root root 33070 Nov 29 12:48 RPMS/perl-Frontier-RPC-0.07-7.noarch.rpm
-r--r--r--  1 root root 18621 Nov 29 12:47

When installing the Satellite, the Installing RHN packages. step fails with the
following error in the log:

Package perl-Frontier-RPC-Client  0.07-7 conflicts with perl-Frontier-RPC

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

Satellite 5.1.0 as of November 29, 2007.

How reproducible:

Tried once.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get new ISO.
2. Try to install it (or upgrade using it).
Actual results:

Installation fails, with error message

Package perl-Frontier-RPC-Client  0.07-7 conflicts with perl-Frontier-RPC

in the log.

Expected results:

No error message.

Comment 1 Jan Pazdziora 2007-11-29 07:07:48 EST
It looks like either these two should not conflict, or only one of them should
be present on the ISO. Assigned to Mirek as he knows what magic he did with that
perl-Frontier-RPC thing.
Comment 2 Miroslav Suchý 2007-11-30 04:14:07 EST
There should be only perl-Frontier-RPC-0.07-7.noarch.rpm. The client should not
be there.
Comment 3 Miroslav Suchý 2007-11-30 04:31:15 EST
OK, I removed -Client package.

Comment 4 Miroslav Suchý 2007-12-13 04:39:15 EST
From release team:
A general feeling was to try and see if we could get this into the RHEL release,
either Extras channel or main distro along with the other perl modules.

Basic argument, nearly all our tools expose and use XML-RPC for API, bugzilla,
RHN, Issue Tracker, and more no doubt, yet, with perl, we do not ship/provide a
way to communicate with them within OS. We get multiple requests from
customers/users of RHN Hosted and Satellite XML-RPC API to justify looking to
supply beyond just Satellite channels.

A minor negative about maybe adding to the RHN Tools channel, is that all
content currently in Tools is RHN/Satellite owned/coded stuff, no 3rd party code
packages within the channel.

So, going to poke RHEL PM, and see what we get back.
