Description Bojan Smojver 2002-01-20 17:23:15 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20011126

Description of problem:
The OpenSSL packages:

specifiy incorrect opensslXXX in provides. This is the output:

[bojan@beast bojan]$ rpm -q --provides openssl  
openssl = 0.9.6c-2
[bojan@beast bojan]$ rpm -q --provides openssl096  
openssl096 = 0.9.6-7
[bojan@beast bojan]$ rpm -q --provides openssl096b  
openssl096b = 0.9.6b-1
[bojan@beast bojan]$ rpm -q --provides openssl095a  
openssl095a = 0.9.5a-12

They should provide opensslXXX without the RPM release. For instance

openssl095a = 0.9.5a

and so on.

Such behaviour prevents clean installation of vanilla OpenSSH, which requires
OpenSSL 0.9.6b. Although the package is installed, the --nodeps option has to be
used to install it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Rawhide OpenSSL RPM packages.
2. Download OpenSSH RPM's from
3. Attempt installation of those RPM's.

Actual Results:  Installation requires --nodeps, although all the correct
libraries are already on the system.

Expected Results:  The packages should install cleanly.

That's the normal behavior; it's saying that the package provides

It's the same for all packages.
