I'm seeking for help from RPM experts.
Suppose I have an RPM package
A which depends on package
A's spec has
When I install RPM
A on a centos 6.5 machine with
RPM version 4.8.0,
yum install A :
- rpm installs
Afirst, then it installs
- The installation of
Bcould partially fail. That is,
Awould installed even if the installation of the dependency,
Is this the expected behaviour? (Shouldn't
B be installed before
Can the same behaviour be expected across versions (such as el5)?
I was hoping that the dependencies would be installed before the main package is installed. Which would prevent the installation of the main package, If one of the dependencies failed to install.
Is there any other means to accomplish my requirement?
