Server: full RHL 9 channel.
Client: small system install, without graphical stuff (mostly).

Now "up2date --dry-run evolution" gives:


Fetching package list for channel: rh9...
####################​####################​

Fetching Obsoletes list for channel: rh9...
####################​####################​

Fetching rpm headers...

Testing package set / solving RPM inter-dependencies...
There was a package dependency problem. The message was:

Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
XFree86 4.3.0-2 requires /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth
XFree86 4.3.0-2 requires /usr/bin/cpp
switchdesk 3.9.8-15 requires /usr/bin/desktop-file-install


So, it seems not to be able to solve *file* dependencies.

One uncertain aspect: everything tested on RHL 9 ;-).

Cheers,
