RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Germano Massullo 2017-02-08 09:03:32 UTC
Description of problem:
I am one of the maintainers of darktable package.
It is one of the best photo editing software in FOSS world
darktable 2.2.x uses exiv2 >= 0.24 but RHEL currently ships 0.23, so I cannot update darktable package from 2.0 to 2.2 in EPEL7 repository

Comment 2 Jan Grulich 2017-08-29 12:43:18 UTC
Fixed with exiv2-0.26-1.el7.

Comment 4 Debarshi Ray 2017-08-31 12:31:43 UTC
Looks like the update from exiv2-0.23-6 to exiv2-0.26-1 changed the soname from libexiv2.so.12 to libexiv2.so.26. This affects a few other packages in RHEL. eg., gnome-color-manager, libgexiv2, etc.. We should at least rebuild those against the new ABI.

Comment 5 Michael Petlan 2017-08-31 12:34:09 UTC
Please be aware that this update breaks gnome-color-manager on RHEL-7.4:

# yum install gnome-color-manager
Loaded plugins: langpacks, product-id, search-disabled-repos, subscription-manager
This system is not registered with an entitlement server. You can use subscription-manager to register.
