Description Mikko Tiihonen 2002-05-08 12:24:29 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0rc1) Gecko/20020417

Description of problem:
When running up2date without the db1-1.85-8.i386.rpm installed fails even though
the upd2date rpm does not depend on db1.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e db1
2. up2date

Actual Results:  Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 1169, in ?
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 415, in main
    from up2date_client import gui
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/gui.py", line 20, in ?
    import gnome, gnome.ui
  File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/gnome/ui.py", line 3, in ?
    import _gnomeui, gnome
ImportError: libdb.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Expected Results:  the up2date should have started

Additional info:

The problem goes away when after installing the db1-1.85-8.i386.rpm.

Looks like gnome is missing the dep actually, since no gnome
apps work when you do that. 

I'm reassinging this to a gnome component.

db1 is in the gnome-libs package now, so it'd be hard to remove it.
