Already fixed and rebuild, will be available at the next Fedora Extras push.
Comment 2 Remi Collet 2006-11-09 11:13:15 EST
I think galeon should (as epihany, yelp and others does) require exact version
for gecko-libs.

From yelp.spec
%define gecko_version
Requires: gecko-libs = %{gecko_version}
BuildRequires: gecko-devel = %{gecko_version}

In this way, next firefox update will not break galeon but will only block
updates until new galeon is ready.

Good point, we're hitting a limitation of the rpm automatic dependencies
detection system here, and of course firefox non-standard dynamic libraries

Comment 4 E Mair 2006-12-21 23:14:55 EST
Same thing again with FF
Comment 5 Denis Leroy 2006-12-22 02:48:35 EST
Fixed already, at next FE push.
