Description Przemek Klosowski 2008-06-28 08:41:52 EDT
Description of problem:
Not really yum per se, but a packaging problem: cannot update the system
because of packaging dependencies error for Tcl/Tk packages, which blocks
the entire update.

The workaround is to exclude Tcl/Tk from the update process:

   yum update -x tcl* -x tk*


The system is a brand spanking new Fedora 9 install, with everything; just did
a couple of update cycles after loading from F9 DVD.



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This happens as of Sat Jun 28, 08:30 EST (relevant because the packaging
dependencies are received from the Fedora update sites as of that date)

How reproducible: very reproducible

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update
2. observe Error: Missing dependency messages
  
Actual results:
yum update
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Setting up Update Process
Resolving Dependencies

Expected results:
Of course I expected a successful yum update

I agree that it's a dupe. "only the owner or submitter of the bug, or a
