kpackage can't remove packages
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:49 EDT
Description of Problem:
after a clean reinstall of 7.2 the kpackage program refuses to remove
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. become root, start kpackage
2. mark old package (old kernel, which should be removable because a new
one is installed from RHN)
3. press "Uninstall"
The uninstalldialog tells me: "rpmdepCheck() failed."
Package should be removed.
i get the "rpmdepCheck() failed." when i try to install anything with kpackage
that is happening on my amd at home and pIII + pii at work
command line rpm works
oh, i usually bypass that by disabling the dependency check
I get similar results as noted above. Under 7.1 it worked perfectly.
I downloaded the latest kdepackage version 2.2.1-afrom the kdewebsite. I no
longer get the rpmdepcheck error and so far it seems to work.
Created attachment 36161 [details]
Patch (against kdeadmin-2.2-8.src.rpm's contents) that fixes the problem.
kdeadmin-2.2-10 should fix this problem. Thanks for a patch file.
I tried the kdeadmin-2.2.1-1.i386.rpm rawhide version and that made did not
fix the problem and I can't seem to find the kdeadmin-2.2-10 anywhere on KDE
or at.rpmfind.net. Could you put the link up please. Thanks.
I can't seem to figure these patch commands. What is the command used to
patch the rpm? Thanks.
you find it on ftp://people.redhat.com/than/7.2
