File conflict in installing ZoneMinder
Last modified: 2013-05-31 23:20:02 EDT
Description of problem:
When installing ZoneMinder package from yum, I obtain the following error message:
file /usr/bin/zmu from install of zoneminder-1.25.0-11.fc18.x86_64 conflicts with file from package meataxe-2.4.24-3.fc18.x86_64
Can't really help this; zoneminder was in the distro way before this meataxe package came in. And it seems to want a bunch of three-letter binary names starting with 'z'. This should have been caught in the meataxe review, but it wasn't.
So, meataxe folks, your package appears to want a whole bunch of three letter binary names starting with 'z', including /usr/bin/zmc which is part of the zoneminder package. I have no idea why this wasn't caught during your package review, because zoneminder has been in the distro since 2007.
We'll need to figure out how to deal with this conflict somehow; I may be able to rename within zoneminder but it would take a good bit of patching and potentially breaking of end-user configurations. Zoneminder also has selinux policy which may need adjusting for that kind of thing.
Uh oh. Sorry about that. So far as I know, meataxe is only used by gap. Probably the best thing to do is use environment-modules to hide the meataxe binaries from view, then patch gap to adapt. I'll try to get that done in the next day or two.
