Description Sxren Danielsen 2002-11-26 19:52:17 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003 Description of problem: When I try and install under Development, development tools (gcc, perl) in "Kpackage" it says that it needs "krb5-libs" in version 1.2.5-6 but when I download the version it's asking for and try and install, it says there is a newer version already installed ? Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open Kpackage 2.Click on development tools (automake, gcc, perl) 3.Click update (computing package dependecies) Actual Results: Can't install the packages I want Expected Results: Installation begin, or at least the system installs the packages needed to continue Additional info:
Comment 1 Michael Lee Yohe 2002-11-26 20:54:32 UTC
Could you provide the result of "rpm -q krb5-libs" in a console?
Comment 2 Ngo Than 2002-11-26 23:24:25 UTC
we don't support kpackage anymore since 8.0 it's not included, please use redhat-config-package from 8.0. it's a replacement for kpackage
Comment 3 Sxren Danielsen 2002-11-27 09:15:53 UTC
Reopend the bug because I had made a mistake, when I chose the "component" ! I4m using Danish language on my Red Hat 8.0 installation and thought the component was "kpackage", but now I am informed that the package tool in Red Hat 8.0 is called "redhat-config-packages" ! Same problem, but now filed under the right place :-)
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2002-11-27 13:25:50 UTC
Um.. How exactly is this a "utempter" bug, and why was it reassigned to me? I see nothing at all here related to utempter whatsoever. Looks like you've filed it under the wrong place.

Now to reassign blame to katzj. ;o) Jeremy, what did you do!! ;o)
Comment 6 Sxren Danielsen 2002-11-27 15:50:47 UTC
For Michael: The result of "rpm -q krb5-libs" Is "krb5-libs-1.2.5-7" That is why I can't believe that it wants an older version, and system can't install older version ? Why can't it use the newer version, are packages in Linux not made backward compatible ? Or is it a mistake, perhaps mine ?
Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2002-11-27 16:42:55 UTC
Development libs included krb5-devel which depends on having a specific version of krb5-libs, not a specific version or newer.
Comment 8 Sxren Danielsen 2002-11-27 20:10:58 UTC
Can't find the package where krb5-devel is hiding, which package do I need to delete to be able to get rid of it ?
Comment 9 Michael Schwendt 2003-01-29 00:04:12 UTC
Hmm, how was this bug resolved? It is marked "NOTABUG", but that is hard to believe. This is a regular problem on mailing-lists and message boards. All of the following is just IMHO: Users start with stock krb5-libs package 1.2.5-6 but _without_ packages from the Development group, that means with krb5-devel _not_ installed. Then they apply errata updates which pulls in krb5-libs 1.2.5-7. Then they start redhat-config-packages in order to install Development packages. But redhat-config-packages fails to solve the dependencies for krb5-devel. Somehow it relies on the "comps" and "hdlist" files and wants to pull in krb5-libs 1.2.5-6, not knowing that the krb5-devel 1.2.5-7 erratum for the installed krb5-libs 1.2.5-7 is available at RHN, and complaining that krb5-libs 1.2.5-7 is too new. The manual work-around is to install the krb5-devel erratum manually or with "up2date krb5-devel" prior to running redhat-config-packages. If I'm far off with this theory, I wonder why this krb5 problem bites many users? However, if this is exactly what the reporter has experienced, I would like to learn about what Red Hat has done about this.
Comment 10 Michael Schwendt 2003-02-26 15:55:53 UTC
Reproducable on Phoebe 8.0.94: After a workstation type of installation I simulated a krb5 errata release. That means, I took the krb5 source rpm, increased the package release version to 8 and built new packages. I upgraded the installed krb5-libs-1.2.7-7 package to the newer 1.2.7-8 one as if it were released by Red Hat: $ rpm -qa 'krb5*' krb5-libs-1.2.7-8 I then started redhat-config-packages, added "Development" packages and clicked on "Update". It failed with a critical error for krb5-devel (see attached screenshot) because (as explained earlier) it doesn't unterstand that the user has an updated krb5-libs package installed (like those two errata releases for Psyche) and would need to get a newer and matching krb5-devel from RHN (for instance). The krb5-devel-1.2.7-7 package on CD would not suffice. * depcheck: package krb5-devel needs krb5-libs = 1.2.7-7 (not provided) ('krb5-libs', '1.2.7-7', 8) Is this specific to "krb5" packages (I doubt that) or is it a fundamental problem with redhat-config-packages and the comps file? Can installed errata packages break redhat-config-packages so easily?

Comment 12 Mark Richardson 2003-03-25 00:53:37 UTC
I recently installed RH 8.0 on a Windows ME system and tried to install VMWare when I found this problem. I need to install "gcc" but can't because of the krb5-libs problem. Being new to Linux I have re-read the above listed comments but am still clueless on the solution. Is it possible to un-install krb5-1.2.7-8 and then install -6 via "up2date" or someother means? After decades with Windows and all its problems, this "notbug" qualifies as a bug. I hope the Tech Spt folks at RedHat provide a better solution so they don't get confused with the folks at RedMond WA
