Description Carl George 🤠 2022-04-08 02:41:45 UTC
Description of problem:
libx86emu-3.5-1.el7 was pushed to EPEL7 [0].  It contains an soname bump from 1 to 3.  This is considered an incompatible upgrade and is not allowed by EPEL policy [1].  It breaks the installation of hwinfo-21.68-1.el7.  This was first noticed on the epel-devel mailing list [2].  The same thing also happened in EPEL8 [3].  Since the incompatible libx86emu has already been pushed, the quickest fix is to just rebuild hwinfo against the new soname.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install hwinfo

Actual results:
Error: Package: hwinfo-21.68-1.el7.x86_64 (epel)

Expected results:
successful installation
