results of running 'yum --skip-broken -d4 update yelp\*'
Description of problem:
With the current rawhide 'yum update yelp\*' ends up with the following:
--> Running transaction check
---> Package yelp.x86_64 1:2.31.7-2.fc15 set to be updated
---> Package yelp-libs.x86_64 1:2.31.7-2.fc15 set to be updated
--> Processing Dependency: yelp = 2.31.7-2.fc15 for package: 1:yelp-libs-2.31.7-2.fc15.x86_64
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: 1:yelp-libs-2.31.7-2.fc15.x86_64 (rawhide)
Requires: yelp = 2.31.7-2.fc15
Removing: yelp-2.31.7-1.fc14.x86_64 (@rawhide/14)
yelp = 2.31.7-1.fc14
Updated By: 1:yelp-2.31.7-2.fc15.x86_64 (rawhide)
yelp = 1:2.31.7-2.fc15
Eh? So what is this error? An output from
'yum --skip-broken -d4 update yelp\*' is attached but I still miss what makes yum unhappy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum-3.2.28-2.fc15.noarch results in the following:
The following suggestion is printed too by yum:
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
Such command ends up after a while with no output.
Ahem, maybe this is really a bug in rpm or packages. After retrieving those and running:
rpm -vv -Fh yelp-2.31.7-2.fc15.x86_64.rpm yelp-libs-2.31.7-2.fc15.x86_64.rpm
brings (among other output):
D: package yelp-libs-1:2.31.7-2.fc15.x86_64 has unsatisfied Requires: yelp = 2.31.7-2.fc15
Does "Requires:" needs and explicit epoch if used?
It's a packaging bug and seems to have been fixed already:
* Thu Aug 12 2010 Matthias Clasen <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 1:2.31.7-3
- Fix up dependencies for epoch
