Description Martin Stransky 2014-07-29 09:16:49 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1113862 +++

Mozilla will EOL firefox/thunderbird 24-ESR on 13-Oct 2015. We need to rebase to 31-ESR after that. We also need a libvpx update for that.

Added to git.

Comment 7 Rik Theys 2014-09-29 08:06:02 UTC

It seems this libvpx update on RHEL6 had an so-name bump from libvpx.so.0 to libvpx.so.1, breaking all local applications linked against this library.

It would have been nice if this information was included in the announcement of the update.
