yum erase zip - log

Description of problem:
Problems appeared on various system, not only ia64, but there it had problems when install software back. When uninstalling program "zip" many bugs in uninstalling process.
It causes, that tomcat5 cannot be installed back.
It seems to be /usr/bin/rebuild-gcj-db (java-1.4.2-gcj-compat) missing, because gcj is uninstalled before should be uninstalled.

Problems are in dependencies solving erase process. It isn't problem only tomcat5 application suite, but various java applications.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install tomcat5
2. yum remove zip
3. yum install tomcat5

Comment 3 James Antill 2008-12-08 09:30:48 EST
So this bug is about the ordering of the erase transaction, yes?

What is getting erased, and what needs to be erased for dependencies ... is correct?

Reassigning to rpm, if I've screwed up what the problem is ... please assign back.
Comment 4 Jan Ščotka 2008-12-08 09:43:45 EST
Yes, I thing, problem is, that yum do not resolve dependencies in right way.
java-1.4.2-gcj-compat should be erased at the end, not before uninstalling tomcat or other java libraries.

Comment 6 James Antill 2008-12-08 10:18:02 EST
 The packages looks right, it has:

Requires(post):         java-gcj-compat >= 1.0.31
Requires(postun):       java-gcj-compat >= 1.0.31

...which is provided by java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-, which provides /usr/bin/rebuild-gcj-db.
