Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.5 (Tikanga)

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

Running rpm_check_debug
ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve:
openssl is needed by (installed) openssl-devel
Complete!



Expected results:  All packages updated


Additional info:  I have been running yum update and have gotten all kinds of dependency issues;  Then I run the --skip-broken and get the above

Comment 1 Florian Festi 2013-03-07 15:18:18 UTC
