Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 485518
Cherokee should not pull Lighttpd as dependency
Last modified: 2009-02-16 17:02:06 EST
Description of problem:
When I try to install Cherokee on F10 it pulls 3 more dependencies:
I'm not an expert on this but as far as I know lighttpd is a completely different webserver and should not be pulled.
Cherokee uses in source tarbal code from lighttpd source
This have made conflict between these two packages (see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=472749 and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=472747)
and was solved by using spawn-fcgi from lighttpd-fastcgi package.
We can make lighttpd-fastcgi independent on lighttpd but this is more for lighttpd bugzilla record.
Do you have better solution?
I don't have much knowledge on how to handle such problems. I was only a bit surprised that yum pulls lighttpd when I tried to install cherokee.
So maybe it's the best solution to make lighttpd-fastcgi independent from lighttpd as you said.
I've made next research and this is result.
This bug was solved already (it depends on spawn-fcgi only) but new rpm wasn't pushed to update yet.
I have made update request in bodhi, see
I am not sure how quick it will be in stable update. You can maybe increase karma for that packages.
Can I close this bug now?
It's already in stable.
This solves this bug. Thank you!
