Description Matt McCutchen 2011-08-29 04:52:19 UTC
Description of problem:
When I upgraded from F14 to F15, pilot-link-libs's obsolete for pilot-link caused pilot-link (which contains the udev rules) to be removed.  As a result, pilot-link cannot open the USB device and segfaults because it does not null check the return from usb_open.

If you just wanted pilot-link-libs to be pulled in on upgrade, the require from pilot-links is sufficient to do that.  Having two different packages obsolete the same package is generally bogus.

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

How reproducible:
Did not retry

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have pilot-link-0.12.5-2.fc14 installed.
2. Upgrade to F15 packages.
3. Start gpilotd and try to sync.

Actual results:
pilot-link is removed; segfault.

Expected results:
pilot-link is upgraded; successful sync.
