Description Michal Jaegermann 2008-11-30 21:34:09 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):

Additional info:
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.
Comment 1 Marcela Mašláňová 2008-12-03 10:14:03 EST
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.
Comment 2 Panu Matilainen 2008-12-03 10:29:04 EST
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.
