Always

There was a package dependency problem.  The message was:
A package providing libpisock.so.4 could not be found.

Comment 1 Toni Willberg 2002-03-05 14:10:55 UTC
It would be nice to know which .rpm caused the dependency problem.

I did not find any way to ask up2date to be more verbose. Something like -debug
would be nice...

libpisock.so.4 was never provided by Red Hat. It comes from pilot-link (the
current Red Hat release is pilot-link-0.9.5-8). It's a conflict with the
packages provided by Red Carpet.

I will mark this bug as an enhancement request, since a sensible error message
is indeed more useful. Feel free to change it back and provide us with more
information if you notice something else is not behaving.
