Description Robert Williams 2005-06-08 20:50:03 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050512 Red Hat/1.7.8-1.4.1

Description of problem:
I cannot update to kernel-2.6.9-11.EL because an
unsatisfied dependency for ipw2200-firmware >= 2.2.
Only 2.0-3 is available from my ES4 channel.
I see this:

There was a package dependency problem.  The message was:

Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
kernel-2.6.9-11.EL                       conflicts with ipw2200-firmware < 2.2 

The following packages were added to your selection to satisfy dependencies:
Package                                Required by

Please modify your package selections and try again.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce: Up2date and select all packages, including the kernel.

Actual Results:  See above.   Udates are blocked.

Expected Results:  up2date should find a recent ipw2200-firmware and update
that to satisfy the dependency for kernel-2.6.9-11.EL.

Additional info:

The workaround is to not update the kernel.

Comment 1 Uwe Beck 2005-06-08 23:41:18 UTC
Only ipw2200-firmware-2.0-3 available in extra channel, but kernel-2.6.9-11.EL
conflicts with ipw2200-firmware < 2.2
At this time you must remove ipw2200-firmware-2.0-3 if you want install the new
kernel. This is not a good idee if you need ipw2200-firmware on the system.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-06-09 03:46:09 UTC
New ipw2200-firmware should be pushed to the new channel soon - hopefully by
tomorrow at the latest.

Comment 3 Robert Williams 2005-06-09 17:49:28 UTC
ipw2200-firmware-2.2-1.noarch is now on the ES v4 Extras channel,
but up2date doesn't recognize that it is available to update
the earlier version that I have installed.  I'm updating this one
by hand right now.
