RHEA-2002:024-23 install error
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:01 EDT
This was done on a 7.2 plus all errata system.
Whoever put the big rpm update together did not do proper testing! This set
of updates CANNOT be installed with freshen (rpm -Fvh) as the announcements
Somewhere along the way (for good reasons I assume) the file
/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/poptmodule.so was moved from the rpm-python
package into its own package (python-popt). With up2date installed (I had
previously updated up2date with RHBA-2002:044-12, the freshen (my prefered
procedure) is no possible.
The only way I could update was to issue rpm -Uvh.
This should really be against "python-popt" component since that is the source
package but that component does not currently exist.
Dito. I get the same problem. Here is the output from:
rpm -Fvh popt* rpm* python-popt* gnorpm* kdeadmin* rpm2html* rpmfind*
error: failed dependencies:
poptmodule.so is needed by up2date-2.7.46-7.x.2
Install the python-popt package.
FWIW, this isn't an rpm problem.
