Problem still exists in FC3.
Comment 2 Ulrich Drepper 2006-05-27 13:24:48 EDT
Still the case in FC5.
Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 16:10:50 EDT
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Still the case in FC5?  howl was removed after FC4.  If it's still the case in
FC5, wouldn't that just be the old package lying around from FC4?  howl is
replaced by avahi, which shouldn't have these errors.

Since this isn't a security bug, and the package doesn't exist in FC5 or FC6,
I'm closing this.
