Hi, I am not shure whether this is the right list, but I try. Please let me know, if I should post to other list or other place. Seems that check of required packages is not working in rpm 5.0.0 during install and update. I have a package most_if-1.0-1.i686.rpm. I created some packages for test purposes:
most-bin-1.0-1.i686.rpm Requires: most_if = 1.0most-bin-1.0-1-req-1.1.i686.rpm Requires: most_if = 1.1most-bin-1.0-1-req-0.9.i686.rpm Requires: most_if = 0.9
rpm 5.0.0 installs every combination of most_if with one of the most-bin packages!!
E.g the following command works without complains.
rpm --relocate /if=/home/user/SWDev/rpmroot/if \
--relocate /sys=/home/user/SWDev/rpmroot/sys \
-U most_if-1.0-1.i686.rpm most-bin-1.0-1-req-1.1.i686.rpm
rpm -V -a afterwards correctly reports about not fullfilled dependencies.
Doing the same with rpm 4.1, rpm refuses to install the ones with non matching dependencies.
Ist this a bug or a feature?
