Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2006-11-08 14:58:58 EST
Description of problem:
Firefox in Core has been updated to, while liferea still depends on, causing yum update to break. Please rebuild Liferea

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install liferea
2. yum update

Additional info:
Is liferea not updated for FC-5 anymore? I think it's Extras policy to support
the same releases as FC if possible.

I have the same issue here.

Why does liferea depend on specific version of Firefox?

Firefox support in liferea is optional. I think it could be splitted into two
excluding themselves packages:

liferea - the application itself
liferea-firefox (with firefox dependency) - for users who want to have firefox
support in liferea

I think it is technically possible, Debian does it.


If your Liferea installation was compiled with Mozilla support. In case you did
compile yourself you can check this in the summary output of configure. Note
that some distributions like Debian split the Liferea package into several
parts. To use Liferea with Mozilla on a Debian installation you need the
packages liferea and liferea-mozilla.

Same issue as bug #214659; marking this bug as a duplicate of that. Thanks.
