Description of problem:
Attempting to install libvirt-qpid on a 6.3 system with a fully updated qpid produces the following:
This prevents use of libvirt-qpid and the current version of qpid-cpp-client.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. update to latest qpid
2. attempt to install libvirt-qpid
3. be sad because the packages cannot be installed together
failure to install one or the other
the ability to continue using libvirt-qpid with the new version of qpid-cpp-client
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
With the recent qpid security errata, I'd like to point out that this leaves systems with a problematic choice.
A) don't install security errata
B) remove libvirt-qpid
These don't seem like good options.
When Red Hat shipped 6.8 on May 10, 2016 RHEL 6 entered Production Phase 2.
That means only "Critical and Important Security errata advisories (RHSAs) and Urgent Priority Bug Fix errata advisories (RHBAs) may be released"
This BZ is now going to be closed as it does not appear to meet Phase 2 criteria.
If this BZ is deemed critical please open a support case in the Red Hat Customer Portal and ask that this BZ be re-opened.
