Description Eric Preston 2005-10-18 06:23:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:

trying to upgrade fc3 to fc4 with yum
reviewed wiki known problems list...
encountered one not listed...

demands flac.so > 4...

had to do the kernel upgrade from package and uninstall,
then manual upgrade of flac before yum update worked.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have fc3 installed and updated to current updates
2. download fc4-release and upgrade, update kernel as well
3. try to yum upgrade

Actual Results:  
upgrade fails due to a whole bunch of packages depending on libflac.so >= .4

Expected Results:  
upgrade should have proceeded because FC4 contains libflac.so >= .4

Additional info:

work around... upgrade flac manually by downloading it from FC4 tree,
then upgrade proceeds.

maybe this should make it's way into the wiki?
