Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 869577
Unable to install some third part packages
Last modified: 2012-10-24 09:19:08 EDT
Description of problem:
Sometimes I have to use BricsCAD. But now it's impossible to install it correctly in Fedora 18. YUM tells this:
> Transaction Check Error:
> file / from install of bricscadv12-12.1.23-1.i386 conflicts with file from package filesystem-3.1-2.fc18.i686
> file /usr/bin from install of bricscadv12-12.1.23-1.i386 conflicts with file from package filesystem-3.1-2.fc18.i686
RPM says the same.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download BricsCAD RPM package: http://www.bricsys.com/common/download.jsp
2. sudo yum localinstall ./Bricscad*.rpm --nogpgcheck
YUM/RPM doesn't install the BricsCAD package
YUM/RPM installs the BricsCAD package
In F16 and F17 this package was installable.
VirtualBox from Oracle's repository for F17 is not installable too (there is no F18 repo). An error is the same.
Thanks for report, this is probably an error in bricscadv12 packaging. bricscadv12-12.1.23-1.i386 package should not own the basic directories. I assume they incorrectly change the attributes of the directories - as the directory permissions were tightened because of the lowering capabilities - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=517575 . If you think there is something wrong with filesystem package, please be more specific. What you have reported is not a bug in filesystem package, closing.
As workaround you may use --replacefiles rpm option, however - as I said, permissions on the system directories are intentional.
Thanks for explaination.
