Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 492967
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:08:47 EST
Description of problem:
I'm failing to build a package that requires ImageMagic:
DEBUG util.py:256: ImageMagick-perl-22.214.171.124-4.fc9.ppc64 from build has depsolving problems
DEBUG util.py:256: --> Missing Dependency: /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/ppc64-linux-thread-multi is needed by package ImageMagick-perl-126.96.36.199-4.fc9.ppc64 (build)
Confused. It said it installed perl-5.10.0-40.fc9.ppc64.rpm.
I fetched that package from koji: http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/perl/5.10.0/40.fc9/ppc64/perl-5.10.0-40.fc9.ppc64.rpm
$ rpm -qlvp perl-5.10.0-40.fc9.ppc64.rpm | grep /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/ppc64-linux-thread-multi
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jan 20 07:52 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/ppc64-linux-thread-multi
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jan 20 07:52 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/ppc64-linux-thread-multi/auto
Is anybody actually taking care of this? It prevents me from updating Xfce on F9.
Created attachment 339526 [details]
root.log from requeued task
Attaching root.log because the other one got cleaned up in koji.
Would you look in the mock chroot and see if perl actually was installed properly?
$ mock -r fedora-9-ppc64 --shell
mock-chroot> rpm -ql perl | grep thread-multi
You want me to check? I don't have shell access to the buildsys and no ppc hardware ether.
sorry, though you were doing a local build as well.
I was talking to skvidal about this. Typically these types of problems are dependency issues with packages and not mock/yum/rpm issues per se, but I'm danged if I can find where this one is. I pulled the ppc64 perl and ImageMagik-perl packages and started poking at dependencies and it *seems* like perl is providing what IM-perl is asking for in the file dependency for:
I did notice that perl also provides a /usr/lib version of this path, but I don't see how that would confuse yum.
We may want to try and examine the permissions once the directory is created. Other than that, I'm out of ideas.
so jwb graciously gave me ssh access to a ppc64 system and I installed an F9 chroot over there, install perl, then tried to install ImageMagick-perl and it blew up exactly as you described. I looked at what it's 'requiring' which is this:
$ rpm -qvpR ImageMagick-perl-188.8.131.52-4.fc9.ppc64.rpm
ImageMagick = 184.108.40.206-4.fc9
perl >= 0:5.002
perl >= 5.6.0
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(VersionedDependencies) <= 3.0.3-1
I then looked at what perl in the chroot provided, file-wise:
$ rpm --root /var/lib/mock/fedora-9-ppc64/root -qvl perl | grep vendor_perl
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jan 20 02:52 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jan 20 02:52 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jan 20 02:52 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/auto
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jan 20 02:52 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/ppc-linux-thread-multi
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jan 20 02:52 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/ppc-linux-thread-multi/auto
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jan 20 02:52 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jan 20 02:52 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jan 20 02:52 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/ppc64-linux-thread-multi
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jan 20 02:52 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/ppc64-linux-thread-multi/auto
So, I'm stumped. Perl is providing /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/ppc64-linux-threads-multi and that's the very first thing that IM-perl requires in the above list.
Am I just missing something obvious here?
No idea, this is something for a yum expert I guess. Seth, please take a look at it.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
