Description James Manning 2002-03-14 14:45:10 EST
New bug created as requested by Adrian in bug 61119.  Basically,
on RHL 6.2, attempting up2date -u, with the swatch pkg requiring
the unresolvable deps perl-File-Tail and perl-Date-Calc, the up2date
client went into an infinite loop

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/showattachment.cgi?attach_id=48427

The last 4 lines of each loop are:

=================
Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
There was a package dependency problem.  The message was:
A package providing perl-File-Tail could not be found.
A package providing perl-Date-Calc could not be found.
=================

and then it starts back at the top of the loop:

=================
Retrieving list of all available packages...
