Description of problem:
I tried updating to the latest test RPM packages for 7x on a RH-7.3 system and
it fails to install because it does not provide librpm-4.0.4.so required by a
number of other packages.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Downloaded new rpm packages from
2. rpm -Fvh <new rpms>

Actual Results:  [root@vectra rpm]# rpm -Fvh *7x.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
        librpm-4.0.4.so   is needed by kdeadmin-3.0.3-0.7
        librpm-4.0.4.so   is needed by ucd-snmp-4.2.5-7.73.0
        librpm-4.0.4.so   is needed by ucd-snmp-utils-4.2.5-7.73.0
        librpmbuild-4.0.4.so   is needed by kdeadmin-3.0.3-0.7
        librpmdb-4.0.4.so   is needed by kdeadmin-3.0.3-0.7
        librpmdb-4.0.4.so   is needed by ucd-snmp-4.2.5-7.73.0
        librpmdb-4.0.4.so   is needed by ucd-snmp-utils-4.2.5-7.73.0
        librpmio-4.0.4.so   is needed by kdeadmin-3.0.3-0.7
        librpmio-4.0.4.so   is needed by ucd-snmp-4.2.5-7.73.0
        librpmio-4.0.4.so   is needed by ucd-snmp-utils-4.2.5-7.73.0

Expected Results:  It should have updated OK

Additional info:

It looks like there need to be some 7.x versions of the rpm404 compatibility
rpms shipped with RH8

Yes, rpm-4.1.1 does not supply rpm-4.0.4 libraries,
but is being made available in case people wish to use
rpm-4.2 code base on Red Hat 7.3.

If you want to use rpm-4.1.1 on Red Hat 7.3, all the missing
dependencies would have to be supplied, basically by install
(or back porting) the Red Hat 8.0 version.
