Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2006-11-16 00:33:24 EST
I've added a Provides/Obsoletes in 2.17.2-3.fc7
Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2006-11-16 08:29:52 EST
I'd be happier with a Conflicts instead of Obsoletes, so people who prefer
(non-gnome users ;-) could still install gnuchess
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-11-16 08:34:36 EST
And wouldn't it have made more sense to actually have gnome-games depend on the
existing gnuchess rather than just sucking it into gnome-games?  Otherwise,
anything that wants to use the gnuchess engine now has to depend on gnome-games
which seems kind of wrong.
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2006-11-16 09:54:54 EST
Fair enough. 

We can revisit that once the core/extras wall is falling. I don't think I can
add a requires against an extras package right now. 
And moving things from extras to core would be silly at this point, since
everything is bound to move the other direction soon.
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2006-11-16 16:10:45 EST
Changed to Conflicts: for now.
Comment 6 Andreas Røsdal 2006-12-28 16:21:52 EST
Hi! I'd be very interested in suggestions for good ways to solve this. 
Currently there is the --disable-gnuchess parameter which you can pass to
configure if you don't want to compile gnuchess as part of gnome-games.
Comment 7 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-12-29 02:52:59 EST

I guess we can just drop gnuchess from gnome-games and direct people to pull it
from extras.
Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2007-05-18 13:42:12 EDT
This isn't conflicting now that I can see, correct?
Comment 9 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-19 11:45:37 EDT
Looks like it. 
gnuchess has /usr/bin/gnuchess
gnome-games has /usr/bin/glchess and /usr/bin/gnome-gnuchess
So I guess the conflict got removed by prefixing gnome-.
Still, it would be much better to simply require gnuchess, now that we can,
instead of shipping the same program under 2 different names
Comment 10 Hans de Goede 2007-07-06 16:41:55 EDT
[hans@shalem devel]$ rpm -q gnome-games gnuchess

And I didn't use --force or anything, closing.
Comment 11 Hans de Goede 2007-07-06 16:43:41 EDT
Hmm, maybe that was to quick, re-opening and changing summary to match what this
bug is now about, sorry.
Comment 12 Hans de Goede 2007-07-06 16:45:14 EDT
Should be easy, add --disable-gnuchess to %configure and a "Requires: gnuchess"
Comment 13 Hans de Goede 2007-07-21 04:54:06 EDT
The next rawhide push will include gnome-games-2.19.4-3.fc8, which fixes this.
