[ATrpms-users] yum dependency issues
lists at forevermore.net

A number of people in #mythtv-users (and a couple on the mythtv mailing
list) have started asking about this. One posted a solution of
removing/reinstalling yum, but that doesn't work for me.
My problem is that I see broken dependencies for the yum package in fc3
testing. `apt-cache showpkg yum` displays:
2.1.12-45.rhfc3.at - /etc/yum.conf (0 (null)) /usr/bin/python (0 (null))
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages (0 (null)) Requires: (0 (null))
libxml2-python (0 (null)) python (2 2.2) rpm (2 4.2) rpm-python (2 4.2)
yum-phoebe (0 (null))
If you look, you'[ll see that there is a blank Requires statement in
there, and apt is freaking out because it can't find a package called ""
(null string?). This is exactly what I'm seeing when I try to install yum:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
yum: Depends: Requires: but it is not installable
Those blank depends/requires fields should have a package name of some
sort to tell me what I need to install, right?
