Description Bastien Nocera 2006-08-10 14:36:16 UTC

1. Install RHEL4U3
2. Make sure devhelp is installed
3. Try to up2date:
 Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
 devhelp-0.10-0.2.el4                     requires mozilla = 37:1.8

But mozilla is deprecated in favour of seamonkey
devhelp needs to be updated to mention seamonkey, and rebuilt.

Comment 3 Jay Turner 2006-08-11 12:48:22 UTC
Bastian, sounds like something else is going on with your system, as
seamonkey-1.0.3-0.el4.1 provides "mozilla = 37:1.8"  Are you updating against
the live RHN site or from another source?

devhelp.spec has BuildRequires for mozilla and mozilla-devel >= 1.6

Looks like mozilla-1.7.13 was in the buildroots when the package was built:

# LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/mozilla-seamonkey-1.0.3/ devhelp
devhelp: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libdevhelp-1.so.0: undefined symbol:

devhelp-0.10-0.2.el4 clearly contains a reference to the old mozilla suite
shared lib:

# ldd /usr/lib/libdevhelp-1.so.0 | grep gtkembed
        libgtkembedmoz.so => not found

# readelf -a /usr/bin/devhelp | grep moz
 0x00000001 (NEEDED)                     Shared library: [libgtkembedmoz.so]
 0x0000000f (RPATH)                      Library rpath: [/usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.13]
