Description J. J. Ramsey 2002-08-19 10:58:41 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020607

Description of problem:
The update RPM kdebase-3.0.3-0.7 depends on kdelibs-3.0.3-10, when it should
depend on kdelibs-3.0.3-0.7.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kdelibs-3.0.3-0.7.i386.rpm and its dependencies.
2. Run "rpm -Uvh kdebase-3.0.3-0.7.i386.rpm".

Actual Results:  rpm complains kdelibs >= 3.0.3-10 is needed by kdebase-3.0.3-0.7

Expected Results:  kdebase should install.

On a similar note, I went to:
clicked "Red Hat 7.3: Intel i386" which took me to:
downloaded everything and did (on my vanilla Red Hat 7.3 system):
  rpm --freshen *
and I got the errors:
error: failed dependencies:

which includes the kdebase-3.0.3-0.7 depends on delibs >= 3.0.3-10 error 
along with a whole lot of other junk.  KDE 3.0.0 is very buggy, so it would 
be really nice if it were easy to upgrade.
Comment 3 Doug 2002-09-29 04:11:36 EDT
I have the exact same experince as bdx678.  I downloaded all 96 KDE 3.0.3 rpm 
packages from the "offical" site.  The command I used is this:
   rpm -Fvh --test *.rpm

I get the EXACT same list of errors as bdx678.

It looks from the suggested spec patch above that the library version is simply 
a bad version, and that there really isn't a kdelibs-3.0.3-10 package.  This 
implies that without using the patch, kdebase-3.0.3-0.7 can just installed 
with --nodeps and perhaps --force.

The other funny errors are not so straight forward.  I've read a post on the 
net which indicates that all the missing libxxxx-gcc2.96.so.1 dependencies can 
be "worked around" by also forcing the install of all the complaining packages, 
then making symbolic links to the missing dependencies.

For example, libartsflow-gcc2.96.so.1 is missing, but libartsflow.so.1 is in 
one of the packages.  Therefore, the net post suggests doing this:
   ln -s libartsflow.so.1 libartsflow-gcc2.96.so.1
in the appropriate directory for EACH of the missing dependencies.

I haven't tried this, but it might work.  I do find it odd that a quasi-
official KDE 3.0.3 release from RH failed out-of-the-box, and that there's no 
real fix for it yet.

it's fixed in rhel3 and fc2 current release.
