Re: [HTCondor-users] Broken rpm dependencies hamper installation of older 9.0.x releases

Hello Manuel,

You have uncovered a defect in our packaging. We will fix it in a release soon. Here is the ticket:


Thank you for reporting the issue.

Subject: [HTCondor-users] Broken rpm dependencies hamper installation of older 9.0.x releases
Dear all,

parts of our systems at GridKa use a fixed HTCondor version to avoid automated updates by our puppet configuration management. While re-deploying one of that nodes, we figured out the following problem. The HTCondor version was fixed to 9.0.9-1.el7 and the command yum install condor-9.0.9-1.el7 failed due to dependencies problems. The reason is that condor-9.0.9-1.el7 requires python{2,3}-condor without a specific version. yum is then using the latest version, which however requires a specific condor version, in that case condor-9.0.12-1.el7.

Is this intended behavior or a bug in the packaging procedure?

Steps to reproduce:

yum install epel-release
yum install https://research.cs.wisc.edu/htcondor/repo/9.0/htcondor-release-current.el7.noarch.rpm

yum install condor-9.0.9-1.el7 -> Fails!

yum install condor-9.0.9-1.el7 python2-condor-9.0.9-1.el7 python3-condor-9.0.9-1.el7 -> Works!

The reason is

rpm -q --requires condor-9.0.9-1.el7 | grep python
python2-condor -> no version
python3-condor -> no version

rpm -q --requires python2-condor |grep condor
condor = 9.0.9-1.el7

Thanks and best regards,
