Description Jonathan Briggs 2018-10-31 10:26:06 UTC
Description of problem:
$ rpm -ql pycanberra


The second problem is that after the upgrade to Fedora 29 it seems there is no reason for pycanberra to be installed. Nothing uses or requires it. Why is it there? What is it for?

I can apparently remove it without causing any problems.

Comment 1 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2018-10-31 10:40:47 UTC
The package is using the %python2_sitelib macro without pulling in some dependency that is required to have it declared. This also means that the portingdb scripts are not detecting the package properly, the python2 subpackage should be dropped in F30.

Comment 2 Mathieu Bridon 2018-10-31 10:53:24 UTC
The only packages still requiring pycanberra are ibus-cangjie and pitivi, which are both Python 3. So dropping the python2 subpackage should be fine. I guess it's too late for Fedora 29 though?

As for why it was installed on your system, you might have gotten it as a dependency of something else (e.g Pitivi before it was ported to Python 3), and later uninstalled that. DNF will remove unneeded dependencies when you uninstall the app which had installed them, but if you did that a long time ago with Yum, and then always upgraded your system, that would explain why you still have it.

Yeah, dropping python2 is for F30+. I made a build in rawhide that drops python2.
