Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 51740
openldap-2.0.11-8 breaks dependencies in multiple packages
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:35:53 EDT
Description of Problem:
The shared libraries libldap.so and liblber.so go from so.1 to so.2 in the
latest openldap update. This breaks dependencies in several packages
including sendmail-8.11.0-8 and pine-4.33-7. Also openldap-2.0.11-8
requires libcrypto.so.1 and libssl.so.1, not supplied in the latest openssl
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install latest sendmail and pine from Red Hat.
2. Try to install openldap-2.0.11-8.
I got hit by this too.. RHL71 was fine, and openldap 1.2 on RHL62 too. Other
deps were also broken:
libldap.so.1 is needed by am-utils-6.0.4s5-8
libldap.so.1 is needed by autofs-3.1.5-5
libldap.so.1 is needed by sendmail-8.11.0-8
libldap.so.1 is needed by nss_ldap-122-1.7
libldap.so.1 is needed by auth_ldap-1.4.5-1
libldap.so.1 is needed by xemacs-21.1.14-2.7
libldap.so.1 is needed by pine-4.33-7
Fixed by also installing openldap12, released at the same time.
If this doesn't work for you please re-open.
Release notes should mention that this upgrade requires several steps and is
closely linked with the openssl upgrade, not shown as a recommended update
though released on July 18. Openssl must be upgraded in order to upgrade
openldap, and the openssl upgrade will break many dependencies as well unless
openssl095a is also installed. I suggest the following sequence:
rpm -ivh --force openssl095a-0.9.5a-9.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh openssl-*0.9.6-9.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh openldap12-1.2.12-3.i386.rpm openldap-*2.0.11-8.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh openssl095a-0.9.5a-9.i386.rpm openssl-*0.9.6-9.i386.rpm openldap12-1.2.12-3.i386.rpm openldap-*2.0.11-8.i386.rpm
no pain :-)
Still think comment to that effect should be in errata notes. Both the
dependency on the new openssl and that the compatibility packages for openldap
and openssl need to be installed also.
