Comment 1 Justin M. Forbes 2011-04-18 13:27:11 EDT
This has been fixed with current F15 qemu which no longer has any dependencies on openbios.  The openbios package has been retired.
Comment 2 David Juran 2011-11-27 05:07:39 EST
Re-opening this bug since openbios doesn't seem to be all that retired. Or at least it's still there in F16 with version 1.0-4.1031
openbios-ppc-1.0-2 from F14 however requires openbios-common ov the same release and there is nothing obsoleting or providing openbios-ppc and this breaks the upgrade path.
Comment 4 Cole Robinson 2012-05-29 10:22:19 EDT
Hmm, kinda confused by this myself. The package is retired so we can't easily build a new one to fix the upgrade issues. And not sure why openbios-common is even in the F16 repos.

notting, any suggestion here or are we just stuck with the upgrade issues?
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2012-05-29 12:17:26 EDT
Something could obsolete openbios-*. Unsure why it would be in F-16, unless it just didn't get retired until F16 went out.
Comment 6 Cole Robinson 2012-05-29 18:36:36 EDT
I guess we can have qemu obsolete openbios in F16+. If openbios package is ever revived we just need to drop that bit. Moving to qemu
Comment 7 Paolo Bonzini 2012-05-31 11:22:27 EDT
Yeah, I agree.  Cole, can you look into getting an exception from FeSCo for the QEMU binary blobs (at least those that are not for x86, and in particular SLOF and OpenBIOS)?
