Description Steffen Mann 2002-12-09 11:05:06 EST
Description of Problem:
up2date glibc-devel ENTER w/o kernel-headers installed

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

kernel-headers 2.4.9e.i3

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:

to come across this we did up2date -f kernel-headers and then 
up2date gcc 

prior to this glibc-devel came back with the error message that and
kernel-headers are required and it can not resolve packet interdependencies,
which it shouln't have, or it should have said that the *kernel is marked in the
skiplist and it can not resolve interdependencies because of this.

Expected Results:

resolve dependencies even kernel-headers are in skiplist, they need to be installed!

Additional Information:
Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2003-01-15 00:41:40 EST
Things on the skiplist are not installed. Even when they are deps (especially
when they are deps...)

That said, the error messages should indicate why the package wasn't
available. I belive this error reporting is more verbose in current versions.
