Description of problem:
At some point, a dependency on hal-gnome was created but not enforced
in some gnome rpm.  I updated a bunch of rpm last night via yum and
suddenly gnome-volume-manager started crashing on desktop startup.   I
started working backwards and after installing hal-gnome, the problem
went away, but if hal-gnome was required, then yum should have caught
that dependency and installed it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fedora core 3 rc 2
2. verify that everything works
3.  yum update
4. log in
5. startx


Actual Results:  hal-gnome not installed

gnome-volume-manager crash popup window appears.  wont restart ( so no
nautilus, no desktop background, various badness trying to open files
from apps )

Expected Results:  1) yum catches all missing dependencies and
installs hal-gnome
2) gnome-volume-manager does not crash on x session startup

list of packages updated by yum

This is the list of packages updated by yum.  One or more of these requires
hal-gnome but does not enforce that requirement.

Comment 2 David Zeuthen 2005-01-03 19:12:09 UTC
I'm pretty sure no other packages require hal-gnome; I think what you
were seeing was the prelink issue (bug 140081) that was recently fixed.
