Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 788264
nfs-utils is not installable due to requirement of modutils
Last modified: 2012-02-08 10:56:17 EST
nfs-utils requires modutils which was provided by module-init-tools.
The newest build of kmod obsoletes module-init-tools (but provides module-init-tools) and makes nfs-utils non-installable.
Please change the requires:modutils to module-init-tools so that nfs-utils is installable
Installer image composition will fail without nfs-utils, so I'm proposing this as a blocker for F17 Alpha.
This is preventing us rebuilding libvirt for F17 features too.
" Error: Package: 1:nfs-utils-1.2.5-11.fc17.x86_64 (@rawhide)
Requires: modutils >= 2.4.26-9
Removing: module-init-tools-3.16-5.fc17.x86_64 (@rawhide)
modutils = 3.16
Obsoleted By: kmod-5-4.fc17.x86_64 (rawhide)
IIUC this suggests either that nfs-utils should be changed to depend
on kmod (but does this provide all of modutils?) or else kmod should
be changed to 'Provides' modutils.
The modutils explicit dependency was added ages ago:

- rpc_pipefs mounting and aliases are now in modutils; require that
whatever that means .. rpc_pipefs is in nfs-utils, so it could be the
dependency is now bogus."
