Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 461112
Current cman does not conflict with incompatible gfs2-utils
Last modified: 2008-09-19 06:25:55 EDT
Description of problem:
The current cman package does not conflict with earlier gfs2-utils packages despite the fact that it is incompatible with those packages. The spec file need to be updated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@men-an-tol steve]# rpm -qi cman
Name : cman Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version : 2.99.08 Vendor: Fedora Project
Release : 1.fc10 Build Date: Tue 12 Aug 2008 09:50:12 AM BST
Install Date: Wed 03 Sep 2008 03:54:45 PM BST Build Host: x86-4
Group : System Environment/Base Source RPM: cluster-2.99.08-1.fc10.src.rpm
Size : 2777868 License: GPLv2+ and LGPLv2+
Signature : (none)
Packager : Fedora Project
URL : http://sources.redhat.com/cluster/wiki/
Summary : Red Hat Cluster Manager
Red Hat Cluster Manager
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install cman from rawhide over an older distro, e.g. f-9 which already has gfs2-utils installed
Installs ok, but fails to work
Should refuse to install cman until conflict with earlier gfs2-utils is resolved.
As discussed on IRC, partial upgrades from major distro release to major distro release are not supported (or at least i can't find any reference in the Fedora documentation that state differently).
Upgrading from F9 to F10 will pull in the right packages in the right versions.
Anyway if there is a reference that we should support partial upgrades, please let me know because the Conflicts: complexity is way higher than just gfs2-utils.
