Description Andre Costa 2010-06-29 23:37:31 UTC
Description of problem: tracker-search-tool (a 300K tool) currently depends on Evolution (a 37M MUA) exclusively because of libeutil.so.0 (a 330K lib). Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): evolution-2.30.1-8 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. su -c "yum install tracker-search-tool" 2. su -c "yum remove evolution" 3. Actual results: Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit Setting up Remove Process Resolving Dependencies --> Running transaction check ---> Package evolution.x86_64 0:2.30.1-8.fc13 set to be erased --> Processing Dependency: libeutil.so.0()(64bit) for package: tracker-search-tool-0.8.4-1.fc13.x86_64 --> Running transaction check ---> Package tracker-search-tool.x86_64 0:0.8.4-1.fc13 set to be erased --> Finished Dependency Resolution Dependencies Resolved ================================================================================ Package Arch Version Repository Size ================================================================================ Removing: evolution x86_64 2.30.1-8.fc13 @updates 37 M Removing for dependencies: tracker-search-tool x86_64 0.8.4-1.fc13 @fedora 300 k Expected results: evolution should be removed without side-effects Additional info:

What exactly do you need from libeutil? Perhaps it can be moved to libedataserver[ui].

Hi Matthew, thks for the quick response. Unfortunatelly I can't help you with that, I'm not the maintainer of tracker-search-tool, I'm just a user who just realized this dependency... if there's anything I can do to help, please let me know.

Even worse, some update pushed to Fedora 13 lately seems to have broken dependencies for this altogether. Here's what I get when I try to update: 16:06 [~] kyo> sudo yum install tracker-search-tool.x86_64 [snip] --> Running transaction check ---> Package tracker-search-tool.x86_64 0:0.8.4-1.fc13 set to be updated --> Processing Dependency: libedataserver-1.2.so.11()(64bit) for package: tracker-search-tool-0.8.4-1.fc13.x86_64 --> Finished Dependency Resolution Error: Package: tracker-search-tool-0.8.4-1.fc13.x86_64 (fedora) Requires: libedataserver-1.2.so.11()(64bit) Available: evolution-data-server-2.30.1-2.fc13.x86_64 (fedora) You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest And note the discrepancy in evolution-data-server versions: 16:09 [~] kyo> yum list | grep evolution-data-server evolution-data-server.x86_64 2.30.2-2.fc13 @updates 16:09 [~] kyo> rpm -aq | grep evolution-data-server evolution-data-server-2.30.2-2.fc13.x86_64 16:09 [~] kyo> rpm -ql evolution-data-server | grep libedataserver-1.2 /usr/lib64/libedataserver-1.2.so.13 It appears the latest Fedora13 tracker-search-tool (0.8.4-1.fc13.x86_64) lists a dependency on: evolution-data-server-2.30.1-2.fc13.x86_64 for libedataserver-1.2.so.11 while Fedora @updates has the newer evolution-data-server-2.30.2-2.fc13.x86_64 with libedataserver-1.2.so.13 This actually stopped my "yum update -y" from running, until I removed tracker-search-tool (which removed a bunch of other packages I then had to re-install). There are a few packages that seem to have a hard dependency on tracker-search-tool that I now cannot re-install, so it would be great if tracker-search-tool were updated for the new evolution dependency (or even better, as an optional dependency) so that I can re-install packages that depend on it. Thanks.
Comment 4 Andre Costa 2010-06-30 23:40:54 UTC
Yes, I had exactly the same problem here. Fortunately in my case I could remove tracker-search-tool only. I hope this gets fixed soon, after all what's the point of indexing thousands of files if I can't search for anything? ;-) I'll file a bug on tracker-search-tool.
Comment 6 Matthew Barnes 2010-12-17 02:39:18 UTC
No intention of splitting off libeutil from Evolution, so closing this. I'm still open to moving some functions to libedataserver[ui] if someone can make a case for it.
