View Full Version : Locking package(s) that cause(s) patch dependency conflict

I haven't worked with package locking/protecting using either zypper or
Yast2 Online Update before so please excuse me if this is an easy
question.

I needed to install the PHP OCI8 extension. This required php5-devel
which is available on the SLES 11 SP1 SDK DVD. This is not the newest
version of php5-devel, but it's the newest version provided by Novell,
and I like to use Novell-provided packages whenever possible.
Installing php5-devel from the SDK DVD required the downgrade of 15
dependencies. See the Yast2 conflicts list below.

> php5-devel-5.2.6-50.24.1.x86_64 requires php5 = 5.2.6, but this
> requirement cannot be provided

> apache2-mod_php5-5.2.6-50.24.1.x86_64

Now that the dependencies have been downgraded and the php5-devel
package has been installed, whenever I open Yast2 Online Update, I get
the following message.

> php5-sqlite-5.2.6-50.24.1.x86_64 requires php5-pdo = 5.2.6, but this
> requirement cannot be provided
>
> [ ] Following actions will be done:
> deinstallation of php5-sqlite-5.2.6-50.24.1.x86_64
> deinstallation of php5-devel-5.2.6-50.24.1.x86_64
> [ ] do not install patch:slessp1-apache2-mod_php5-4663.noarch
>
> [ ] break php5-sqlite by ignoring some of its dependencies

I have been choosing option 2 ("do not install
patch:slessp1-apache2-mod_php5-4663.noarch") but I am wondering if
there's an easy way to lock the proper files so that I can continue
upgrading using Yast2 Online Update or "zypper update" without worrying
that I'll upgrade the wrong packages and break PHP's OCI8 extension.
There's no way to lock "patch:slessp1-apache2-mod_php5-4663.noarch" that
I know about, so would I simply lock the 15 packages that had to be
downgraded? Should I also lock php5-sqlite since that seems to be the
package requesting the upgrade of php5-pdo?

Any help/explanations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
Dan

Novell also provides updates to the php5 SDK packages. if you properly
installed the SDK CD as an addon, you actually should get it
automatically. if you did not and don't want to bother with it, you can
also go to 'NOVELL: Patch Finder'
(http://download.novell.com/patch/finder) and download the individual
packages that you need (although that is discouraged, as you will end up
with the same problem later again).


-_zypper_patch_- will always update to the lastest recommended packages
from Novell, so even if you'd add a lock, you would get the same
conflict message everytime. We do encourage you to switch to the latest
update.

Thanks, dirkmueller. I did find the latest php5-devel (5.2.14) in the
Novell Patch Finder. However, it seems it would be easier if I could
get the Add On installed correctly. But, even after using the "Add On
Products" feature in Yast to add the SDK DVD, when I run Online Update
it still doesn't show me the latest version of php5-devel that was on
Novell Patch Finder. It only shows the version on the SDK DVD. Is
there something else I must check before Online Update will show me the
patches from the Add On for the SDK packages? Or is there another
program I should be using to update "add on" packages?
