Description J. Randall Owens 2008-07-01 08:04:54 UTC
Description of problem:
rrdtool was recently updated, and since collectd-rrdtool depends on the in the (former) particular version of rrdtool (1.3-0.14.beta4),
smart (& presumably yum & PackageKit?) ask to uninstall it to install the new
rrdtool (1.3.0-1)

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

How reproducible:
Attempt to upgrade to latest Fedora Updates, while the collectd-rrdtool package
is already installed

Steps to Reproduce:
1. smart install collectd-rrdtool rrdtool-1.3-0.14.beta4
2. smart upgrade
Actual results:
smart asks to uninstall the collectd-rrdtool package to upgrade rrdtool

Expected results:
smart upgrades rrdtool and possibly the collectd-rrdtool, without
uninstalling any of them

Additional info:
I'll do a repackage of the collectd packages as soon as rrdtool etc. finish
upgrading, and see whether all that's needed is a package rebuild & release
bump.  Guessing by the versionless "BuildRequires: rrdtool-devel" in the
specfile, that's probably all.
I notice collectd also has a "BuildRequires: lm_sensors-devel". 
lm_sensors-sensord has much the same problem, requiring  There's
already a bug report for that one (bug 453516).
I did check testing to see if there were any new collectd packages coming down
the pipe, but didn't find anything there yet.

Comment 1 J. Randall Owens 2008-07-01 08:24:32 UTC
Slight correction; the direct dependency is on[24], not[24].  Still provided (or not) by the same rrdtool package.

Comment 2 J. Randall Owens 2008-07-01 08:32:27 UTC
My mock-rebuilt release with no changes to the specfile installs nicely.
