fwupd failed dependency
Last modified: 2016-06-28 10:45:53 EDT
Description of problem:
fwupd-0.1.5-3.fc22.x86_64.rpm is missing a dependency on libfwup.so.0.4()(64bit)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to install or update fwupd
error: Failed dependencies:
libfwup.so.0.4()(64bit) is needed by fwupd-0.1.5-3.fc22.x86_64
libfwup.so.0.5 is installed by fwupdate-libs-0.5-3.fc22.x86_64
I don't see why dnf wouldn't pick this up automatically. Either way, I've not seen this on f23 or f24, but please re-open this if you still see it.
Dnf does pick it up automatically. See this output:

Nothing to do.
It may not exist in f23 or f24, but (I'm not trying to be sarcastic here) I filed the bug against f22, and as of this moment it still exists in f22. As far as I know f22 is still supported.
I think you need to move to f23 or f24 at this point, sorry.
I know that the reason I couldn't upgrade to F23 is not anyone at Fedora's concern, but, the reason I couldn't upgrade to F23 was that F23 broke vmWare. I know some people consider it blasphemy that I use proprietary software, but I haven't found an open source virtualization package that is as stable, and works as well as vmWare. Eventually a workaround was found, and I did upgrade. This bug doesn't effect me any more, but, I'm really not sure why this wasn't fixed. It didn't require any troubleshooting, or writing code, it was just a simple dependency issue that only required adjusting the spec file and repackaging.
