Description of problem:

Yum refuses to install package compat-wxGTK. 

'yum -y install compat-wxGTK' will actually install wxGTK. If wxGTK is already
installed, the yum command says that wxGTK is already installed and the latest
version (even though what was requested was compat-wxGTK).

compat-wxGTK26 is not installed.

Is compat-wxGTK being deprecated and if so, is this really the way to do it?

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and update F7
2. Make sure compat-wxGTK is not installed
3. Do yum -y install compat-wxGTK
Actual results:

compat-wxGTK does not get installed.

Expected results:

compat-wxGTK should get installed.
Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2007-08-14 16:00:55 EDT
Yes, compat-wxGTK is being deprecated. Since we can't take it out of the spins,
the best we can do is to have wxGTK provide/obsolete it.

Nothing should be using the ancient 2.4 code at this point, nothing in Fedora
is, and it was conflicting with other wxGTK code and preventing it from running.
