Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1031219
fedup with texlive
Last modified: 2015-02-17 14:15:46 EST
Description of problem:
Using fedup to upgrade from 17 to 18 (the recommended upgrade method) takes most of the time upgrading the texlive [mess/diaspora]. This is a ridiculous situation. Steve Jobs would say WTF.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Use the recommended upgrade method to upgrade an installation that has texlive-ish installed.
Much agreed! It is ridiculous.
The current situation is not only annoying between fedora releases (which one could live with perhaps) but also upgrades often require download 1000 miniature packages.
A possible advantage of having many packages would be that upgrades would only require a few downloads, but this is obviously not true in practice.
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
