rpm conflicts has me confused
 
Hi list,

I can install the default ppp-2.4.4-2, but when I try to
install an rpm I built from Sangoma's ppp-2.4.4.5 (using
checkinstall-1.6.1) I get this error:

# rpm -ivh ppp.2.4.4.5-1.eai.i386.rpm

error: Failed dependencies:
ppp < 2.4.3-3 conflicts with kernel-2.6.18-162.2.1.el5.i686

Isn't 2.4.4.5 > 2.4.3-3 ???


trying this:

yum localinstall ppp.2.4.4.5-1.eai.i386.rpm --nogpgcheck

gives some advice:

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
package-cleanup --dupes
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

and I tried each of those, but no joy.

Is this an rpm bug, a checkinstall bug, or PEBKAC
(problem exists between keyboard and chair)?

thanks,
-Bob Beers

Hi Bob,

building RPMs with checkinstall isn't really standard and it will cause
problems. Better build from source so you avoid the rpm conflicts or ask
someone here to build a proper RPM.
