Description of problem:
up2date does not do dependency check while installing gnomemeeting.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.make sure you don't have gnomemeeting, pwlib and openh323 rpms installed. if
you do remove them by rpm -e openh323 pwlib gnomemeeting
2.install gnomemeeting via "up2date gnomemeeting"
run gnomemeeting and see that it does not even start because the necessary pwlib
and openh323 libs were not installed
Actual Results: gnomemeeting does not start because it cannot load the shared
Expected Results: up2date should have resolved the dependencies and installed
pwlib and openh323
when I downloaded gnomemeeting package and wanted to install it from the
command line using rpm -i gnomemeeting-0.93.1-3.i386.rpm
it complained about unresolved dependencies: pwlib and openh323
so I think that this is not an rpm issue but it is an up2date issue.
the same kind of story happened with up2dating octave. bug # 72026
Sounds like the same bug as bug # 72026
To be more specific, the bug itself is in rpm-python. The
rpm commandline works correctly, but the part of rpm-python
that is used to solve deps is busted.
fixed in RHL 8.0
