Description Kai Engert (:kaie) (inactive account) 2007-07-20 09:09:01 UTC
- new Firefox got released
- need to rebuild yelp against newer gecko-libs
- buildroot detects that it needs libgnomeui-devel
- buildroot detects that libgnomeui requires yelp
- yelp can not be pulled in, because gecko-libs is gone


Ray, you recently added yelp as a dependency to libgnomeui.
Why? You didn't mention it in your check-in comment.

Would it be possible to remove the dependency?

Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2007-07-20 12:10:09 UTC
Gah, what fun.  Ray is at GUADEC, and I'd like this to get fixed, so I'll fix
this today.

Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2007-07-20 14:17:19 UTC
libgnomeui-2.19.0-2.fc8 building without a requires on yelp.

This whole situation needs more looking into, setting status to Modified for now.

a project we are changing the version of this bug to '8'.

If this bug still exists in rawhide, please change the version back to
(If you're unable to change the bug's version, add a comment to the bug
and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help and we apologize for the interruption.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 22:43:15 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2009-07-15 08:19:41 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
