sometuhing went wrong during update as I found that there was in plase an fc4
version and not the correct one.I had to disinstall it and re-install, otherwise
updated didn't install the FC5 version.
Comment 2 Gianluca Busco 2006-03-24 10:05:12 EST
I've the same problem, see the 186504 bug.

Are you upgrading from FC4?

Comment 3 antonio montagnani 2006-03-24 10:10:32 EST
Yes, upgrading from FC4.It seems that Scribus on my PC was one of the  very few
packages (maybe the only package) that were not upgraded correctly.

I've the same problem but I performed a new "scratch" installation. Actually I
can't install some Java applications. But, I tried to solve the trouble with a
simple workaround. So, Are you tried to install a new (extra) application from a
"binary" file?

Comment 5 Michael Schwendt 2006-03-24 10:34:00 EST
Can you two please verify that you have Fedora Extras 5 enabled in your
Yum configuration?

That would be scribus- which is _not_ linked libssl.so.5
but the newer libssl.so.6. If it didn't, it would have been caught by
the dependency checker we run on Fedora Extras for some time. So, the
Scribus you tried to run is _not_ from Fedora Extras 5, but an older
Comment 6 antonio montagnani 2006-03-24 10:37:58 EST

every thing is clear (and solved): I do not understand why Scribus was not
cleanly updated during FC4-to-FC5 upgrade process.And I am not the only one
reporting this bug.
Comment 7 Andreas Bierfert 2006-03-24 18:57:43 EST
Hm I wonder where this comes from:

Newest version on FC4:  scribus-
Newest version on FC5:  scribus- 

So this tells me: FC4 < FC5 and since I took over this was _always_ the case and
I would guess even the case before that.

And doing a rpm --requires scribus clearly shows libssl.so.6 as Michael pointed
out before.
Comment 8 Andreas Bierfert 2006-03-24 19:01:56 EST
well forgot the disttags: should read scribus- and
