Description Alexander Todorov 2008-11-07 09:47:30 EST
Description of problem:
Yum upgrades from 5.2 to 5.3 snap #2 fail due to unsatisfied dependencies:

Error: Missing Dependency: kernel(rhel5_dlm_u3) =
ee96246055c25aab6ed0e0038b4214900df5dc6f is needed by package kmod-gfs-PAE
Error: Missing Dependency: kernel(rhel5_dlm_u3) =
0d6933577ef00e4c10daecba8524ad518e783b0c is needed by package kmod-gfs-xen
Error: Missing Dependency: kernel(rhel5_dlm_u3) =
c6d2cf4749f5a3407c6b1dd475e776fa779f43cd is needed by package kmod-gfs

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 5.2 Server, @everything
2. try to upgrade to 5.3 with yum update
Actual results:
yum transaction fails due to dependencies

Expected results:
transaction succeeds

Additional info:
This seems related to bug #466677. More precisely https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=466677#c13 which indicates the same dependency error.
Comment 2 Chris Feist 2008-11-07 17:11:40 EST
Which kernel are you trying to install this package on?
Comment 3 Chris Feist 2008-11-07 17:17:20 EST
This issue should be resolved by using the latest gfs kernel module:


The problem was caused because the kernel(rhel5_dlm_u3) changed between kernel-2.6.18-122.el5 & -121.el5.  The snapshot picked up the -122 kernel, but not the new kmod-gfs.  (The new kmod-gfs may not have been built in time for Snap 2).
Comment 4 Chris Feist 2008-11-07 17:18:41 EST
I'm not sure what status to set this bug to, but it will be resolved when the latest kmod-gfs makes it into the next snapshot.
