Description Christopher McCrory 2003-01-22 17:27:11 UTC
Description of problem:
running up2date from 8.0.92 to 8.0.93 
most updates went in alpha order.  When daemons were restarted ( I saw cups)
they would fail with:

Jan 21 15:03:05 office15 cups: cupsd shutdown succeeded
Jan 21 15:03:07 office15 cupsd: cupsd: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Jan 21 15:03:07 office15 cups: cupsd startup failed

This is because openssl gets updated later.

/sbin/init 1 ; /sbin/init 5 will fix all , but ...

Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2003-01-22 19:23:05 UTC
looks like a possible packaging bug with cups (or possible openssl), 
reassigning there...

Comment 2 Christopher McCrory 2003-01-22 19:41:26 UTC
I did this on a desktop machine so cups was the only affected daemon running
that came before the openssl update.  If I had been running apache , openldap,
etc.  they would probably have not restarted also.  Hence putting it under up2date.

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2003-01-22 22:22:46 UTC
Adrian: what kind of packaging problem am I looking for?  cups requires like it should.

Comment 4 Adrian Likins 2003-01-22 22:47:24 UTC
Hard to say. Maybe cups needs a PreReq on openssl? 

Looking at the scripts, I'm not exactly sure why the
init scripts would be getting tickled on an upgrade
either, unless `alternatives` is somehow doing it. 

Nothing else in the script's stands out as something
that should be troubleprone. I'll poke jbj and see
what his thought is. 

Comment 5 Jeff Johnson 2003-01-22 22:58:24 UTC
Hmmm, this might be a skipped (this is a feature, not a bug)
ldconfig that has not regenerated the symlink for a daemon

In order to tell, I'd need the ordered list of packages
for this up2date run so that I could see whether ldconfig
was run between openssl and cups package install. I'd need
to know the several packages before openssl was installed as well.

Comment 6 Adrian Likins 2003-01-22 23:27:49 UTC
Look in /var/log/up2date for a line similar to:

[Tue Jan 21 20:51:37 2003] up2date installing packages: ['kdeadmin-3.1-0.4',
'kdeutils-3.1-0.3', 'kdelibs-3.1-0.11', 'kdebase-3.1-0.14', 'ope
nssl-0.9.7-3', 'openssl096b-0.9.6b-1', 'lm_sensors-2.6.5-3',

(except with the right date, and the packages you updated). This
should get some of the info jbj is looking for. 

Comment 7 Christopher McCrory 2003-01-22 23:29:51 UTC
I'll add a 'rpm -qa --last' if you want, but basically it was:
[A-Z]* in alpha order
[a-z]* in alpha order

As if the "depends on this and that" step was done but ignored

ldconfig running or not wouldn't have mattered as /lib/ was not
installed on the hard drive yet to symlink from.

yes? no? maybe?

Created attachment 89536 [details]
output from up2date

Comment 9 Jeff Johnson 2003-01-24 13:30:54 UTC
Hmmm, I need the ordering info. Can you append
    rpm -qa --last
here too? Thanks.

Comment 10 Christopher McCrory 2003-01-28 17:34:38 UTC
Created attachment 89649 [details]
output of rpm -qa --last

output of rpm -qa --last

up2date was hosed ( no versions showed up)
I tried rpm -Fvh redhat-release-8.0.93-2...
no go
rpm --rebuilddb (hung)
again (hung)
init 1
rpm --rebuilddb (go get coffee)
init 5

Comment 11 Jeff Johnson 2003-01-28 17:59:48 UTC
OK, this is not a missing ldconfig problem afaict.

BTW, all that's needed is
    rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
you don't *have* to do --rebuilddb.

I suspect that your hangs are from doing "kill -9" too.

But, if you find the coffee pot empty, --rebuilddb -vv
will give you progress message sto watch

Comment 12 Tim Waugh 2003-01-29 09:28:38 UTC
CUPS clearly has the dependency listed for openssl.  I don't see how this can be
a packaging problem, unless I'm missing something.
