Description Jun Aruga 2021-07-25 09:14:08 UTC
Description of problem:

A laptop called "Framework laptop" [1] has a fingerprint reader device that requires libfprint >= 1.92.0 [2]. A Fedora 34 Respin provided by Fedora Respin SIG for the Framework laptop has 1.92.0 or newer according to [2], but the normal Fedora 34 currently still has 1.90.7. So, is it possible to upgrade the libfprint to 1.92.0 or newer on Fedora 34?

Thanks for the answer. However the bodhi URL is for libfprint-1.90.7-3.fc34. But What I am asking is libfprin >= 1.92.0 that is like on f35, not 1.90.7.
So, I think the Status: CLOSED, Resolution: CURRENTRELEASE is a mistake.

Really, trust me, the status is correct.

Ah you applied a patch to work on Framework laptop!!

I just found someone's message "Tested on Framework laptop (one of the newly added sensors) and works great." on the bodhi page.

Now I understand the situation. So, we don't need to upgrade libfprint to 1.92.0 or newer on f34. Thanks!
