Description Alex Lancaster 2007-02-28 01:58:34 UTC
Description of problem:
(sigh).  Yet again, can't upgrade because galeon needs a rebuild against new

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo yum upgrade
Actual results:
--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Dependency: gecko-libs = for package: galeon
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: gecko-libs = is needed by package galeon

Expected results:
Upgrade should proceed.

Additional info:
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.
