Description Steven Pritchard 2008-01-16 18:03:54 EST
Description of problem:

"yum --enablerepo=development update yum\* rpm\*" on Fedora 8 gives you a broken
yum.  Trying to run it gives the following error:

  There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
  required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:
     /usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/_sqlitecache.so: undefined symbol:
  Please install a package which provides this module, or
  verify that the module is installed correctly.
  It's possible that the above module doesn't match the
  current version of Python, which is:
  2.5.1 (r251:54863, Oct 30 2007, 13:45:26) 
  [GCC 4.1.2 20070925 (Red Hat 4.1.2-33)]
  If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to 
  the yum faq at:

/usr/lib64/python2.5/site-packages/_sqlitecache.so is owned by
yum-metadata-parser, so I'm assuming it should have a dependency on something in
the newer version of python in rawhide.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 rpm                     x86_64   development       1.2 M
 rpm-libs                x86_64   development       922 k
 rpm-python              x86_64   development        65 k
 yum                     noarch     3.2.8-2.fc9      development       509 k
 yum-metadata-parser     x86_64     1.1.2-4.fc9      development        26 k

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 8.
2. yum --enablerepo=development update yum\* rpm\*

Actual results:
Above error.

Expected results:
Working yum.  :-)

This problem still affects yum-metadata-parser-1.1.2-5, at least on i386.

I don't know if this helps tracking down what is broken, but a _work_around_
kludge until yum-metadata-parser is fixed:
pull the _sqlitecache.so (and just that file) from a
yum-metadata-parser-1.1.2-1.fc8.i386.rpm and use it to replace the one installed
by yum-metadata-parser-1.1.2-5.fc9.i386.rpm, and yum works again.

Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2008-01-24 10:57:18 EST
the problem is glib2 changed the functions it calls without incrementing the
version of the library. So the dependency in yum-metadata-parser has no way of
knowing it needs to be changed. reassigning to the glib maintainers.
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2008-02-05 12:07:32 EST
I don' t know since when it is supported to selectively install development
versions of packages onto older releases. 

Sure, the inaccurate dependency is unfortunate.
