Curl update fails
Last modified: 2009-08-11 08:26:20 EDT
Description of problem:
Trying to update curl after passing dependency check YUM says:
Transaction Check Error: file /usr/share/man/man1/curl.1.gz from
install of curl-7.19.4-3.fc10.x86_64 conflicts with file from package
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Is this caused the same as [URL="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=485659"]this.[/URL]
I can't see any curl.i386 package in Fedora 10 x86_64 repository. There are only libcurl and libcurl-devel i386 packages. Have you installed it manually?
This was automatically installed for dependencies for KDE i386.
I did remove the curl.i386, and some KDE i386 along with it and the CURL then updated.
Since I did not intentionally installed curl.i386 and it was installed as result of other packages needing it, I think the message submitted above is the result of a bug either in packages or yum or both.
Thanks for the reply.
Please do you remember (or could find in log) the packages which were removed along with curl.i386? It sounds to me like the curl package is not culprit of the conflict.
We should reassign it to the package which requires curl.i386 on x86_64 system. It is AFAIK not possible to install both curl.i386 and curl.x86_64 together as there is only one /usr/bin/curl.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
No activity so far, so I am closing the bug now. Feel free to reopen when you have some new info, e.g. steps to reproduce.
