xorg-x11-libs dependency failure for x86_64
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:52 EST
Description of problem:
When attempting to upgrade xorg-x11 via yum, there is a dependency
failure which appears to be a result of an error in the header.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update
Package xorg-x11-libs needs xorg-x11-libs-data = 6.7.0-5, this is not
xorg-x11 is updated to version 6.7.0-9
I have tried several different x86_64 mirrors, all with the same results.
I recommend contacting the administrator of the yum repositor(y|ies)
that you are having this problem with, as this is not a bug in the
X.Org software itself, and does not appear to be a bug in the
packaging of the X.Org software either. It seems to be a problem
with what software is available on the yum mirror's you are using,
and some mirrors may not mirror both i386 arch as well as x86_64
arch. If they do, and one arch is out of sync with the other, there
may be problems also.
Since we have built the rpms that are claimed to be missing,
and they have been released to the public over time, I don't
consider it to be packaging related either.
Another possibility is that there might be a multilib issue,
but that's a problem for the domain of rpm/yum to solve, and
also not related to the xorg-x11 package.
If the problem still occurs for you after investigating
the yum mirrors you're using, please discuss the issue on
Fedora Core mailing lists to try to narrow the problem down
and see if it is a configuration issue or command usage issue.
Closing bug "WORKSFORME" as I do not consider this a bug in
xorg-x11 nor it's packaging, and I'm unable to reproduce
