Pound package has broken dependencies
Last modified: 2013-02-13 21:30:53 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #795501 +++
Description of problem:
Pound package requires libtcmalloc.so.0 from google-perftools package which is missing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Pound.i686
Failed to build transaction : Pound-2.6-1.el6.i686 requires libtcmalloc.so.0
Pound.i686 is installed
Same problem on Fedora 16:
[root@kvm-san zaitcev]# yum install Pound
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
--> Running transaction check
---> Package Pound.x86_64 0:2.6-0.5.fc16 will be installed
--> Processing Dependency: libtcmalloc.so.0()(64bit) for package: Pound-2.6-0.5.fc16.x86_64
Package google-perftools-libs is obsoleted by gperftools-libs, but obsoleting package does not provide for requirements
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: Pound-2.6-0.5.fc16.x86_64 (updates)
Available: google-perftools-1.8-1.fc16.x86_64 (fedora)
Available: google-perftools-libs-1.9.1-1.fc16.x86_64 (updates)
Available: google-perftools-1.9.1-1.fc16.x86_64 (updates)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
Same story for 2.6-1.fc16 from Koji:
[root@kvm-san zaitcev]# rpm -i Pound-2.6-1.fc16.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libtcmalloc.so.0()(64bit) is needed by Pound-2.6-1.fc16.x86_64
Meanwhile, 2.6-1.el6 from EPEL installs ok. WHAT IS GOING ON.
I rebuilt 2.6-3 from the SRPM which Ruben used to build in F17, and that
installs fine. If nobody objects, I'm going build it for F16 and send to
Please ensure that gperftools are used as builddep.
See http://www.apsis.ch/pound/ :
"If the PCRE, tcmalloc (from the Google perftools package) and/or Hoard are available Pound will link against them. This will provide a significant performance boost and is highly recommended."
No objections, please go ahead.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '16'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
