Description Rolf Wilteus 2004-10-08 09:49:06 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
When several packages are uninstalled using a single rpm invocation
they are not uninstalled in proper dependency order.

Example: I have two packages, base and application.
Application requires base.

When installing both with "rpm -U base.rpm application.rpm" then
base is installed first (even if I use "rpm -U application.rpm
base.rpm"). Just as it should be.

When uninstalling them "rpm -e base application" and "rpm -e
application base" gives different results. Then the packages seems to
be uninstalled in reverse command line argument order. That breaks the
dependency and my application requires base to be available in the
preun section.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build attached packages
2. Install them
3. Try both variants of "rpm -e" as mentioned above

Actual Results:  Different uninstall order

Expected Results:  The same order. application should always be
uninstalled before base since it has a "requires base" dependency.
