Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 280041
Please branch revisor for EPEL5
Last modified: 2008-05-15 15:15:24 EDT
Description of problem:
We need revisor branched for EPEL5. Thanks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
From the devel branch please.
Package Change Request
Package Name: revisor
New Branches: EL-5
Am I just looking badly or is this not live on EPEL yet?
I've just sent off a build of 2.0.5, 126.96.36.199 was already in CVS, not sure if a
build had been sent off. Please let us know if 2.0.5 even runs... it should, but
I've been doing release testing from F7.
today revisor is not installable from epel5-testing because livecd-tools is
missing. Bug 382401 has been filed, asking for livecd-tools.
Will test revisor as soon as it can be installed.
Bug 382401 tells us that livecd-tools will not happen for epel5
so, if revisor can work in a 'make ISO but not liveCD' way without livecd-tools,
can you please adjust the Requires for the epel5 branch.
if OTOH revisor cannot function without livecd-tools, then I guess we need to
pull revisor from epel5 :-(
I think the only thing we would need to pull into revisor is mayflower. We've
addressed the known issues stated in #382401
Jon, should we branch EL-5 upstream and remove live media options?
I'd prefer to pull mayflower into revisor to enable live image creation over
adding another branch to support EL-5 without live creation.
I'll work to pull in mayflower now and send off a build.
*** Bug 425830 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
OK, this will need testers. If I find some time, I'll provision a el5 guest to
do a test.
in response to comment #12
the package from epel-testing installs fine but fails to start for me
# yum --enablerepo=epel-testing install revisor
# rpm -qa revisor\*
# rpm -V revisor revisor-comps

What should I do to debug this further?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '7'.
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 7'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 7 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. 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. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

This bug looks confusing in any case; there might be still open issues, but I
suspect they are better acted upon in a separate bug
