Description Jeff Odom 2004-11-27 18:25:15 UTC

Description of problem:
When installing gnome-python2-bonobo-2.6.0-3, the following failed
dependancy occurs:

        pyorbit >= 2.0.l is needed by gnome-python2-bonobo-2.6.0-3

Note that the current version of pyorbit is 2.0.1.  However,
gnome-python2-bonobo is looking for 2.0.l (that's an ell, not a one),
so the dependancy fails.  

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -U pyorbit-2.0.1-1.i386.rpm gnome-python2-bonobo-2.6.0-3.i386.rpm

Actual Results:  error: Failed dependencies:
        pyorbit >= 2.0.l is needed by gnome-python2-bonobo-2.6.0-3

Expected Results:  Successful package upgrade/install

Additional info:

It can of course be worked around by adding --nodeps to the rpm
command line.

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!

Amazingly, the typo still exists in the specfile.  However, it just works in FC5
and FC6 still pyorbit now has a version number of 2.14.1, which is greater than
2.0.l, where 'l' is the letter ell.  I'm of several minds as to whether to close
this bug or not, and if so, how.
