Description TReebe 2003-04-18 02:12:07 EDT
Description of problem:

when trying to install the full GNOME software_engeneering_package (with
redhat-config-packages) for the first time (no prog of this package was
installed) after automaticaly upgrading gtkhtml-1.1.8-5 to 1.1.9-0.9 with rhnt
service announces gtkhtml-devel is missing gtkhtml-1.1.8-5 so that no component
of this package could be installed because the devel is within the standard

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gtkhtml-devel-1.1.8-5 i think
Comment 1 Tim Bingham 2003-06-11 00:32:08 EDT
I was able to work around this by

 1) temporarily downgrading gtkhtml (# rpm --upgrade --force
 2) running "System Settings" -> "Add/Remove Applications" and installing the
"GNOME Software Development" package group
 3) run "Redhat Update Agent" to install the latest versions (1.1.9-0.9) of
gtkhtml and gtkhtml-devel

Hope this helps

Basically, redhat-config-packages needs to be aware of errata, so it
can go and fetch the newer redhat-config-packages from RHN. 

There's nothing GtkHTML specific about this ... gtkhtml and gtkhtml-devel
have to match in version, but when you updated via RHN, you only had
gtkhtml installed, so the newer gtkhtml-devel that was on RHN wasn't

Then when you went to install gtkhtml-devel (etc.) from r-c-p, r-c-p
didn't know where to get the newer version.
