Description Thomas Moschny 2008-05-13 17:16:40 UTC
Description of problem:

libc-client doesn't properly obsolete all older versions of libc-clientXXXX 
out there, makes yum upgrade f8->f9 fail.

rpm -q libc-client2006-2006k-1.fc8.x86_64
libc-client2006-2006k-1.fc8.x86_64

rpm -q --obsoletes -p libc-client-2007a1-2.fc9.x86_64.rpm
libc-client2004d < 1:2004d-2
libc-client2004e < 2004e-2
libc-client2004g < 2004g-7
libc-client2006 < 2006k-1
libc-client2007 < 2007-2

it shouldn't.  what makes you think this caused the failure?

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2008-05-13 19:00:29 UTC
otherwise, yes, I agree the Obsoletes is wrong here.

Sure it does. Because of the missing obsoletes, libc-client is not considered to
be a replacement for libc-client2006. This itself is not the problem. But
libc-client2006 has dependencies (libssl, libcrypto). This causes the problems,
because these dependencies also cannot be updated.

yum upgrade gives:

Error: Missing Dependency: libcrypto.so.6()(64bit) is needed by package
libc-client2006-2006k-1.fc8.x86_64 (installed)
Error: Missing Dependency: libssl.so.6()(64bit) is needed by package
libc-client2006-2006k-1.fc8.x86_64 (installed)

This can of course be solved by manually deinstalling libc-client2006 and
installing libc-client.

Comment 4 Jef Spaleta 2008-05-13 20:09:40 UTC
since the obsoletes dont work as expected  someone with an f8 system with
libc-client2006-2006k installed doesn't actually pull the newer libc-client for
f8 as an update which obsoletes libc-client2006-2006k.

So right there you have a problem without invoking the F9 upgrade path.

But if you go to do the F9 upgrade via yum from such a system starting point
with libc-client2006-2006k installed you get a dep resolution error because the
things which require libc-client2006 = 2006k-1 cant be fulfilled.

The fix will involve pushing both F8 and F9 updates with corrected obsoletes I
think.

Comment 8 Thomas Moschny 2008-05-14 22:29:07 UTC
Shouldn't we also have an update for F8?

Comment 9 Rex Dieter 2008-05-15 04:33:12 UTC
Strictly, yes, but it's not required to resolve the F8->F9 upgrade problem.

That's right. But F8 users won't get the updated version, and that's also one
aspect of this ticket.

Comment 16 Dmitry Butskoy 2008-05-19 14:12:24 UTC
You have broked Fedora 7 :(

yum log is:

--> Processing Dependency: libc-client.so.2006 for package: php-imap
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
php-imap-5.2.4-1.fc7.i386 from installed has depsolving problems
--> Missing Dependency: libc-client.so.2006 is needed by package
php-imap-5.2.4-1.fc7.i386 (installed)
Error: Missing Dependency: libc-client.so.2006 is needed by package
php-imap-5.2.4-1.fc7.i386 (installed)


it seems that libc-client-2007a1-3.fc7 (a subpackage of uw-imap-2007a1-3.fc7)
now obsoletes libc-client2006-2006k-1.fc7, but the latter is still needed by the
current F7's php-imap ...

Comment 17 Rex Dieter 2008-05-19 14:20:25 UTC
Go see bug #447184, php needs to issue it's own update to address this.
