Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 473845
iproute update does not update
Last modified: 2008-12-09 23:38:16 EST
Description of problem:
An upgrade of F8 installation leaves an "orphaned", and with missing dependencies, iproute package. The problem is that the one on F8 is iproute-2.6.26-2.fc8, updated sometimes in November 2008, and the one which is supposed to replace it is iproute-2.6.26-1.fc10. Results from yum are like this:
Setting up Local Package Process
Examining iproute-2.6.26-1.fc10.i386.rpm: iproute-2.6.26-1.fc10.i386
iproute-2.6.26-1.fc10.i386.rpm: does not update installed package.
Nothing to do
'rpm -Uvh --oldpackage iproute-2.6.26-1.fc10.i386.rpm ' does not work either because:
error: Failed dependencies:
libatm.so.1 is needed by iproute-2.6.26-1.fc10.i386
Only after 'yum install /usr/lib/libatm.so.1', which installs missing linux-atm-libs, an "--oldpackage" saves the situation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
That will be not an issue with F9->F10 updates as iproute in F9 is currently iproute-2.6.25-1.fc9 but an upgrade F8->F9 will bump into the same trouble.
I didn't find anything wrong with spec file. There was simple added new BuilRequires linux-atm-libs, after which is possible install two more files. But that shouldn't be issue, because those files are installed in directories, which are used anyway.
F8 has newer version-release of iproute than F10, so it fails to upgrade correctly.
This is an packaging issue, not rpm bug.
Omg. I missed this one. Thank you.
