Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80833
7.3 -> Phoebe upgrade results in package dependency errors
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:42 EST
Description of problem: During an upgrade from 7.3 (everything install) to
Phoebe, there are several package dependency problems that would result in an
unsuccessful RHN registration:
# rpm -q kernel
# rpm -Va --nofiles
Unsatisfied dependencies for blt-2.4u-7: libtcl.so.0, libtk.so.0
Unsatisfied dependencies for pygnome-gtkhtml-1.4.2-3: libgtkhtml.so.20
Unsatisfied dependencies for glms-1.03-14: libpanel_applet.so.0
Unsatisfied dependencies for gnomeicu-0.96.1-3: libpanel_applet.so.0
Unsatisfied dependencies for ical-2.2-26: libtcl.so.0, libtk.so.0
Unsatisfied dependencies for gcc-chill-2.96-110: gcc = 2.96-110
Unsatisfied dependencies for libgtop-examples-1.0.12-8: libguile.so.6
Unsatisfied dependencies for rpmfind-1.7-7: librpm-4.0.4.so, librpmdb-4.0.4.so,
Unsatisfied dependencies for timeconfig-3.2.7-1: libnewt.so.0.50
Unsatisfied dependencies for glibc-debug-static-2.2.5-34: glibc = 2.2.5-34,
glibc-devel = 2.2.5-34
Unsatisfied dependencies for postgresql-tk-7.2.1-5: libtcl.so.0, libtk.so.0
pygnome-gtkhtml fixed in next build of gnome-python2.
timeconfig needs a redhat-config-date TUI and an obsoletes in redhat-config-date.
All the rest are just old dead packages.
I just wrote a TUI for redhat-config-date to replace timeconfig.
redhat-config-date-1.5.7-1 should replace /usr/sbin/timeconfig with a shell
script that launches a python replacement for the timeconfig command.
For historical reasons, the name of the program will remain 'timeconfig'
although it is now a python program that uses the redhat-config-date backend. I
also made redhat-config-date obsolete timeconfig in the spec file.
QA, please verify
