Yum refuses to install package compat-wxGTK
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:13 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install and update F7
2. Make sure compat-wxGTK is not installed
3. Do yum -y install compat-wxGTK
compat-wxGTK does not get installed.
compat-wxGTK should get installed.
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.
