Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 836726
Upgrading software fails due to depsolve
Last modified: 2012-06-30 17:33:51 EDT
Description of problem:
After DVD upgrade from Fedora 15 to Fedora 17, software update reports 1243 updates to be necessary. Upon running it, the end result is this message: ERROR with transaction check vs depsolve:
grub is needed by bootconf-1.4-5.fc17.noarch
perl(Switch) is needed by hct-0.7.60-6.fc17.noarch
Please report this error at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Fedora&version=rawhide&component=yum
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
bootconf is for grub 1 only. Fedora 17 install/upgrade, installs grub2 by default.
If you want to stay on grub 1, you'll need to install it and uninstall grub2 manually; otherwise uninstall bootconf manually. Anaconda cannot resolve all dependencies at upgrade, for many reasons. This needs to be handled manually.
There are no plans to update bootconf to grub 2's format at this time; it will probably be deprecated in some upcoming release.
