ganglia needs update to work with updated rrdtool
Last modified: 2008-07-02 23:14:23 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):
Attempt to upgrade to latest Fedora Updates, while the ganglia packages are
Steps to Reproduce:
1. smart install ganglia-gmetad ganglia-web rrdtool-1.3-0.14.beta4
2. smart upgrade
smart asks to uninstall the ganglia packages to upgrade rrdtool
smart upgrades rrdtool and possibly the ganglia packages, without uninstalling
any of them
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.
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.
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
My mock-rebuilt release with no changes to the specfile installs nicely.
I'll push new packages later on today, the rrdtool update caught me by surprise :(
ganglia-3.0.7-2.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
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.
