Default 6.3 missing updates and packages

you need to cycle through the srpms look at exclusivearch and work back
from there - and also check the notes to see whats released where.

there are rpms released to only one arch as well, even when they build
to multiple ones :/

Default 6.3 missing updates and packages

Hello Johnny,

A few more questions because it's not always sure if your reply only
relates to one package or those above as well...

I think you overlooked this one. I'm quite sure the comment below does
not apply to kdebindings .

And this, or is this S390 too?

PPC only too?

What about libvpd? You build and distribute that.

And what about this one?

If it is built, then it does not have an EXCLUSIVEARCH set in the SRPM
... however, here is lsvpd, which does:

http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHBA-2012-0795.html

libvpd should also be ppc only ... but they left out the EXCLUSIVE ARCH
in their SRPMS:

http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHEA-2011-0548.html

So, libvpd should be (and will be) removed.
(see what we have to go through for the 6.x releases)

Default 6.3 missing updates and packages

<snip>

Here is my research .. I think no action is required, based on the
individual comments:

=======================
cdrkit-1.1.9-11.el6

This is built ... not missing (built packages are not named cdrkit, but
instead dirsplit, genisoimage, icedax, wodim)

No Action Required.
=======================
clustermon-0.16.2-18.el6

This is built ... not missing (built packages are not named clustermod,
but are named modcluster*)

No Action Required.
=======================
compat-gcc-295-2.95.3-86.el6

Not Required s390 only

No Action Required.
=======================
compat-gcc-296-2.96-144.el6

This can build on CentOS-6, but is not in the upstream i686 or x86_64 repos

No Action Requried.
=======================
compat-gcc-32-3.2.3-69.el6

This can build on CentOS-6, but is not in the upstream i686 or x86_64 repos

No Action Requried.
=======================
ding-libs-0.1.2-9.el6

This is built, not missing (built packages not named ding-libs, but
libpath_utils and libpath_utils-devel)

No Action Required.
=======================
hunspell-no-2.0.10-5.1.el6

This is built, not missing (built packages not named hunspell-no, but
are hunspell-nb, hunspell-nn, hyphen-nb, hyphen-nn, mythes-nb, mythes-nn)

No Action Required.
=======================
kdebindings-4.3.4-5.el6

This is built, not missing (built packages not named kdebindings, but
are named PyKDE4, PyKDE4-akonadi, PyKDE4-devel, kross-python)

No Action Required.
=======================
libehca-1.2.2-3.el6

No Action Required.
=======================
mpitests-3.2-5.el6

This is built, not missing (built packages not named mpitests, instead
named openmpi, mvapich, mvapich2, mvapich-psm, mvapich2-psm)

No Action Required.
=======================
ovirt-node-1.9.3-28.1.el6

ovirt-node is not in the upstream release for 6.3, nor is it in
Scientific Linux or Oracle Linux for EL6.

No Action required.
=======================
python-rhsm

Desc: "A Python library to communicate with a Red Hat Unified
Entitlement Platform"

This is not included in CentOS because it is used to comunicate with RHN
... we do not communicate with RHN.

No action required.
=======================
virt-who-0.6-6.el6
Desc: "Agent that collects information about virtual guests present in
the system and
report them to the subscription manager"

This is not included in CentOS because it is used to comunicate with RHN
... we do not communicate with RHN.

No action required.
=======================
xorg-x11-drv-geode-2.11.12-1.el6

ExclusiveArch: %{ix86}
This is released on i686, is not required for x86_64.

No action required.
=======================
xorg-x11-drv-neomagic-1.2.5-1.el6

ExclusiveArch: %{ix86}
This is released on i686, is not requried for x86_64

No action required.
=======================
vios-proxy-0.2-1.el6

Based on the SRPM, there is no vios-proxy-0.2 rpm, just
vios-proxy-host-0.2-1*, vios-proxy-guest-0.2-1*, and
vios-proxy-guest-0.2-1*

Therefore the CentOS tree has vios-proxy-0.1-1.rpm (build from the older
SRPM), and the vios-proxy-0.2-1 RPMS (built from the new RPM). This is
the approach by Scientific Linux and Oracle Linux.

No Action Required.
=======================
zaf-0-0.3.20080714svn.1.el6

This is built ... not missing (built packages are not named zaf, but are
named hyphen-af and hyphen-zu)

No Action Required.
=======================

Do you mean there are no binaries in the upstream 6.3 tree for this?
That is weird, both TN 6.2 and TN 6.3 mention there are bug fixes for
this package.

You might want to remove the existing rpm from the repos then. Still
exists on C5.8 too.

Thank you for checking my list. Glad to see all packages are accounted
for. I will make sure to compile a list with exceptions and add some
sort of srpm to rpm name translation for source packages that do not
produce a package with the same name.

dmidecode-2.11-2.el6.src.rpm and dmidecode-2.11-2.el6_1.src.rpm only
differ in the changelog so no action required.

gnome-power-manager-2.28.3-6.el6.src.rpm and
gnome-power-manager-2.28.3-6.el6_2.src.rpm contents are exactly the same
(apart from mtime), so no action required.

Regards,
Leonard.

This may be needed to build RHEV-Node-iso's, which are basically a
stripped-down version of a RHEL 6.x distro with a text mode UI, and
therefore not part of the upstream release. This is only speculation
though.
