Description J. Randall Owens 2008-07-01 03:04:24 EDT
Description of problem:
rrdtool was recently updated, and since ganglia-gmetad and ganglia-web depend on
the (former) particular version of rrdtool (1.3-0.14.beta4), smart (& presumably
yum & PackageKit?) ask to uninstall these to install the new rrdtool (1.3.0-1)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Attempt to upgrade to latest Fedora Updates, while the ganglia packages are
already installed

Steps to Reproduce:
1. smart install ganglia-gmetad ganglia-web rrdtool-1.3-0.14.beta4
2. smart upgrade
Actual results:
smart asks to uninstall the ganglia packages to upgrade rrdtool

Expected results:
smart upgrades rrdtool and possibly the ganglia packages, without uninstalling
any of them

Additional info:
I'll do a repackage of these as soon as rrdtool etc. finish upgrading, and see
whether all that's needed is a package rebuild & release bump.  Guessing by the
versionless "BuildRequires: rrdtool-devel" in the specfile, that's probably all.
Comment 1 J. Randall Owens 2008-07-01 03:13:09 EDT
Oh, and I did check testing to see if there were any new ganglia packages coming
down the pipe, but didn't find anything there yet.
Comment 2 J. Randall Owens 2008-07-01 03:27:45 EDT
Ah, it's not just the bump in the release number of rrdtools that did it.  They
now provide librrd(_th)?.so.4 instead of librrd(_th)?.so.2 like the older
packages.  And then ganglia-web requires ganglia-gmetad, which requires
Comment 3 J. Randall Owens 2008-07-01 04:31:36 EDT
My mock-rebuilt release with no changes to the specfile installs nicely.
Comment 4 Kostas Georgiou 2008-07-01 07:32:08 EDT
I'll push new packages later on today, the rrdtool update caught me by surprise :(
Comment 5 Fedora Update System 2008-07-01 08:09:46 EDT

Comment 6 Jarod Wilson 2008-07-01 10:03:47 EDT
Yeah, rrdtool snuck in a soname bump somewhere late in the 1.3.0 development
cycle... Didn't notice it in rawhide, as a ganglia 3.1.x development build was
recently pushed there, which picked up the new rrdtool. I think I noticed it,
but forgot to mention it, apologies.
