Description IBM Bug Proxy 2001-06-06 22:42:21 UTC
Hardware Environment:
Intel SDV IA-64
~1gig ram
18 gig scsi HD
b3 stepping Itanium

Software Environment:
Redhat 7.1 for IA-64 beta (may 29 beta)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select "Custom" installation option
2. Select install everything at the bottom of the screen that lets you
what to install.
3. Watch it complain about a failed dependency in Canna-libs

Actual Results:
When you follow the steps above, the install program complains that the
Canna-devel requires Cann-lib to install and asks if you want to: 1.
packages to resolve dependencies, 2. Do not install this package
or 3. Ignore dependencies.  The first option is the default, and this will
both of those packages to be installed, so the workaround is easy. 
However, in
the list of packages to install when "everything" is selected, Canna-lib
be included if Canna-devel is (shouldn't everything mean everything?).

Expected Results:
Installation should not return an error about failed dependencies.

Paul, there is probably a reason for not including Canna-lib even when you
specified "everything" -- perhaps this Canna-lib is not needed in most
cases with Cana-dev and installing it would take too much disk space
(that's why there is option #3 where you can ignore the dependencies).
After all, you selected "Custom" installation so the system assumes that 
you know what you are doing.  However, this is a fair question to ask 
Red Hat....it may be an oversight....I don't know....

This is an old, fixed bug. the 0529 isos are somewhat bogus. (it's actually
the wolverine tree.)
