Description of problem:
The program fwbuilder consists of three packages; the program, a "plug-in" for
the particular flavor of firewalling you wish to do (such as fwbuilder-ipt
for iptables), and a lib (libfwbuilder). These appeared in updates this am (2/9/06) from the Extras repo. This evening, the lib package
libfwbuilder-2.0.10-2.fc4.i386.rpm is missing. It doesn't appear in the
updates list, and I went to the redhat server and browsed the list, and sure
enough, it's not there, even though the other two packages,
fwbuilder-2.0.10-2.fc4.i386.rpm and fwbuilder-ipt-2.0.10-2.fc4.i386.rpm are.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run yum update libfwbuilder's latest version doesn't appear though the other two components of fwbuilder do
Expected Results: this package was in the repo 14 hours ago or less - it has been removed for some reason
fwbuilder and libfwbuilder are two separate packages which can be rebuilt
independently of each other whithin certain bounds.
The GUI and compilers come from the fwbuilder source package, while the backend
libraries come from libfwbuilder. fwbuilder was rebuilt yesterday to accomodate
some mainly cosmetic changes. There was no need to rebuild libfwbuilder, as such
there has never been a libfwbuilder-2.0.10-2 (there may be one in the future,
but that has nothing to do with this bug).
Every fwbuilder-2.0.10 package ought to work with every libfwbuilder-2.0.10
package (if this is not the case for some reason there will be an explicit
requirement in the fwbuilder package, which rpm will complain about, and which
automatic update tools line yum will resolve for you).
