Did you figure out why it was retired in the first place?

Comment 3 Jiri Kastner 2013-09-12 06:04:46 UTC

Comment 4 Michael Schwendt 2013-09-15 11:05:23 UTC
Perhaps because the GSS-API in krb5-devel is supposed to be used instead.


The libgssglue packaging is broken, btw.

> Provides: libgssapi = %{version}-%{release}
> Provides: libgssapi-devel = %{version}-%{release}
> Obsoletes: libgssapi <= 0.11 libgssapi-devel <= 0.11

That has been reported as bug 502131 (package obsoletes both devel and library causing confusion for yum) a long time ago, but has been CLOSED/WONTFIX eventually after no response.

Obviously, the -devel Obs/Prov need to be moved into the -devel package. There are a few more things in the spec that ought to be updated to match current guidelines.

i successfully built conserver with krb5-devel, removed dependency on libgss* libraries.
