Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 448826
openib-perftest and perftest have an obsolete loop
Last modified: 2014-01-21 01:10:29 EST
Description of problem:
openib-perftest and perftest obsolete each other, without any versioning
This causes a whole bunch of problems, like "yum update" will continue forever
installing the other package ... the worst of which is that "yum install
perftest" doesn't work.
The sane fix is to remove the obsolete from one of them (and make the other
version specific, i.e. in perftest Obsoletes: openib-perftest <= 1.2-5.el5_1.1).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I've done a patch against the 5.2.z yum which "fixes" the biggest problem
(recursion traceback so you can't install either):
...but all the others are basically unfixable, in that there's no "right"
behaviour that yum can guess correctly.
