mpich2 : Conflicts with mpd
Last modified: 2010-03-23 06:21:36 EDT
=> mpich2-1.0.8-3.fc11.i586 in rawhide-development-i386
File conflict with: mpd-0.14.2-1.fc11.i386
It's being handled upstream, https://trac.mcs.anl.gov/projects/mpich2/ticket/165 .
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Fixing bug #519698 will also fix this one.
So MPICH2 mpd is not going to be renamed by upstream.
Then please work towards adding proper "Conflicts:" tags as implicit conflicts are not acceptable.
Ref. bug #559017, if you just adhere to the MPI guidelines and drop the alternatives support (or move it to a subpackage) the conflict is resolved for the majority of users.
Or if you still are against the guidelines, then please file your complaints to the packaging committee ASAP.
This seems to have been fixed at least in 1.2.1p1-1.
