Description Barry K. Nathan 2003-03-09 11:33:10 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030308

Description of problem:
The RPM test-4.1.1 packages fail to properly install onto a Red Hat 8.0 system
due to a dependency (version) problem involving redhat-rpm-config-8.0-1.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Method A:
1. Set up Red Hat 8.0 system
2. Try to install the test-4.1.1 RPM packages from the command line (e.g., rpm
-Fvh *8x.i386.rpm)

Method B:
1. Set up a Red Hat 8.0 system
2. Set up a server (e.g., Current) for up2date, with all errata
3. Update the RH 8.0 system from the server (apply all errata).
4. Add the test-4.1.1 packages to the server
5. Attempt to update the 8.0 client again.

Actual Results:  from up2date:
Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
There was a package dependency problem. The message was:

Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
redhat-rpm-config-8.0-1                  requires rpmbuild(VendorConfig) <= 4.1

from command line:
error: Failed dependencies:
        rpmbuild(VendorConfig) <= 4.1 is needed by (installed)

Expected Results:  Successful installation of new RPM test packages, and
resolution of RPM freeze/hang problems.

Additional info:

I don't knoe if this is the fault of the new RPM packages or the old
redhat-rpm-config package. Also, I'm not sure whether to file this against 8.0
or rawhide. Feel free to change the component or version if I blew this.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2003-03-10 16:13:05 UTC
Ah yes, another place where 4.1 needs to be hard wired.

The dependency in the rpm-build package was
    Provides:  rpmbuild(VendorConfig) = %{version}

Fixed in CVS, will be in both rpm-4.2 and rpm-4.1.1 final.

Thanks for the report.
