Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 07:21:48 EDT
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
Comment 3 Jaroslav Škarvada 2016-07-25 11:03:59 EDT
Opened upstream ticket regarding this problem:

It doesn't seem to be trivial to unbundle it. I have already wrote 50kB+ patch and it's still not enough to get it working with the system libtommath. Waiting for upstream.
Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2016-07-25 15:20:40 EDT
Thanks for your unbundling efforts. While unbundling is the better solution, nowadays the Fedora policy is more liberal towards bundling, see the first link in the initial comment. A "Provides: bundled(libtommath) = $tommathversion" would bring this package into compliance while waiting until/if unbundling becomes a possibility.
Comment 5 Jan Kurik 2016-07-26 00:28:18 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.
