Description of problem:
just ran up2date and got ethereal-0.8.18-, now can't run ethereal
because it isn't there???

# rpm -q ethereal --filesbypkg
ethereal                  /usr/sbin/editcap
ethereal                  /usr/sbin/tethereal

that's it. i retro'd to previous version to make sure it wasn't me and sure
enough /usr/sbin/ethereal is there.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rev to latest version of ethereal on rhn
2.try to run ethereal

Actual Results:  nothing.

Expected Results:  kind obvious...

You need the ethereal-gnome package in order to get the graphical UI for
ethereal. ethereal itself now only contains the text based tool in order to save
separate more cleanly between server based installations and GUI based.

Read ya, Phil

forgettting for a sec that the command line version is tethereal (:o), i would
like to request that this be reclassifed as a bug for the rpm build itself.
ethereal worked, i upgraded the package and it no longer worked. possibly just a
dependency issue in the rpm, but i don't think that this is how it should behave.



Comment 3 Phil Knirsch 2002-03-26 13:29:24 UTC
Tricky thing. It is something up2date would need to handle as neither ethereal
itself nor rpm could do such a thing.

An updated via anaconda is no problem as anaconda knows what to do, it's just
that you cannot generate a dependancy chain in rpm that would allow such a
thing. So the only advice i really have right now is to manually install

Read ya, Phil

PS: Feel free to reopen and reasign the bug to a different component (up2date
e.g.), but it definitely can't be fixed in ethereal itself.
