Description J.Jansen 2007-06-05 03:10:04 EDT
Description of problem:
Updating Openvrml fails because it requires firefox while firefox is the current version

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
openvrml - 0.16.4-2.fc7.i386 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.try to install openvrml - 0.16.4-2.fc7.i386 on a system where firefox is installed
Actual results:
installation failure due to depencies

Expected results:
instalation of openvrml

Additional info:
Question : why is openvrml dependent on a certain version of firefox and not on
a minimal version? Is firefox so "backwards-incompatible"?
Comment 1 Braden McDaniel 2007-06-05 03:46:33 EDT
Yes, it is. libopenvrml links with libmozjs, which Firefox puts in a versioned

This has already been fixed; the new packages just haven't propagated yet.
