Description Alexandre Oliva 2002-08-29 20:32:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020809

Description of problem:
After upgrading up2date to 2.9.55-2 and rpm to 4.1-1.0, up2date will no longer
run.  I had to update libelf to 0.8.2-2

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install null
2.Update up2date and rpm from the RHN null channel
3.Try to run up2date again

Actual Results:  Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 9, in ?
    import rpm
ImportError: /usr/lib/librpmdb-4.1.so: undefined symbol: gelf_getehdr

Expected Results:  rpm should have refused to upgrade itself to rpm 4.1 because
of the missing dependency on (the newer version of) libelf.

Fixed in rpm-4.1-1.03
