Description Jaroslaw Sosnicki 1999-12-21 11:53:16 EST
I upgraded to release rawhide-release-19991220-1.noarch.rpm
When I try to run upgrade to kernel-utils-2.2.13-0.9.i386.rpm or
memprof-0.3.0-2.i386.rpm I am getting this message:
# rpm -Uvh binutils- kernel-utils*rpm memprof*rpm
error: failed dependencies:
        libbfd- is needed by kernel-utils-2.2.13-0.9
        libbfd- is needed by memprof-0.3.0-2
# rpm -q binutils

Looks like an old reference in dep. list.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-12-21 13:01:59 EST
This is a problem with kernel-utils and memprof, not binutils. Both these
packages were built before binutils was upgraded in our build system,
so the dependency in formation is wrong. These problems will be sorted
out as part of doing QA for Red Hat 6.2, but, for now, you probably need to
do little more than recompile from the src.rpm's with the upgraded binutils
installed on your build system.
Comment 2 Jim Kingdon 1999-12-21 16:17:59 EST
Changing component to "kernel" because I don't see a category for
kernel-utils or memprof.  Perhaps someone can think of, or create,
a more appropriate component.

Will be fixed in the kernel in the next raw hide.
