Description Joachim Frieben 2005-11-20 09:19:09 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20051018 Epiphany/1.8.2

Description of problem:
After a fresh install from the rawhide development tree,
"system-config-printer-gui" crashes instantaneously. The
required module "bonobo.ui" is missing. The exact message
after launching the utility from the command line reads:

[test]$ system-config-printer-gui
ImportError: could not import bonobo.ui

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute "system-config-printer-gui" from the shell.

Actual Results:  The "system-config-printer-gui" utility flashes up
briefly and that's it.

Expected Results:  One should be able to install a new printer.

Additional info:

After installing the missing "gnome-python2-bonobo" package,
everything works as expected. The strange thing is that
"system-config-printer-gui" requires "gnome-python2" which
itself requires "gnome-python2-bonobo". However, this
dependency was not respected during the installation.

Comment 1 Joachim Frieben 2005-11-20 13:35:00 UTC
Installing "gnome-python2-bonobo" also made "up2date-gnome" usable
again which would not even flash up on the display. This probably
applies to most/all other "GNOME/Python" based utilities.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2005-11-20 17:44:05 UTC
It looks like this is just being caused by a backwards handling of dependency
whiteout.  I've committed a fix for that to CVS.  If you don't mind, could you
run 'rpm -Va 2>&1 |grep Unsat' and let me know any others so that I can ensure
that they're being caused by whiteout as well and that there's not something
else hiding here?

Comment 3 Joachim Frieben 2005-11-20 20:45:36 UTC
Unsatisfied dependencies also for:

  1. ypbind-1.17.2-5.i386: yp-tools
  2. gtk+-1.2.10-48.i386: gdk-pixbuf >= 0.18.0

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2005-11-20 21:12:47 UTC
Both of those are also in the whiteout, so should be fixed now.

Thanks for the quick feedback!
