librpm-4.0.3.so   is needed by kdeadmin-2.2.2-2
librpmbuild-4.0.3.so   is needed by kdeadmin-2.2.2-2
librpmdb-4.0.3.so   is needed by gnorpm-0.96-11
librpmdb-4.0.3.so   is needed by kdeadmin-2.2.2-2
librpmio-4.0.3.so   is needed by gnorpm-0.96-11
librpmio-4.0.3.so   is needed by kdeadmin-2.2.2-2

or even better something along the lines of:

Additional Information:

rawhide issue. 

you get both pieces ;->

Should be fixed in an upcoming rawhide snapshot, eventually.

Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2002-03-06 23:27:49 UTC
btw, next version of the client will be more explicit and accurate
in the way it describes these kinds of dependency errors.

Comment 3 Matt Jamison 2003-05-22 12:45:42 UTC
works properly
