Rebuild galeon for new firefox-18.104.22.168-1.fc6
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:58 EST
Description of problem:
(sigh). Yet again, can't upgrade because galeon needs a rebuild against new
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo yum upgrade
--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Dependency: gecko-libs = 22.214.171.124 for package: galeon
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: gecko-libs = 126.96.36.199 is needed by package galeon
Upgrade should proceed.
Does the firefox maintainer *still* not communicate to the galeon maintainer to
make sure the upgrades proceed smoothly. This has happened *every* time firefox
or mozilla has been upgraded, which normally happens about every 6 months.
Hopefully the Core+Extra merge will make this a thing of the past.... ;)
I was telling Phillip Langdale how quickly i get bug reports when galeon is
broken by a firefox update, just as a proof of galeon still being popular out there.
Even if Chris Aillon notified me of firefox updates, there's nothing I could do
since they do not go through the same build system, i.e. i have to wait until
firefox is released before i can even rebuild galeon. The good thing is this
will come to an end soon with the merge, finally...
build is queued, for FC-6.
