gnome-libs packaging affects updates
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:22 EST
Description of problem:
gnome-libs and gnome-libs-devel packages which come with F8
have 1:1.4.2-6.fc8 version. The catch is that those from FC6
are now currently at 1:1.4.2-7.fc6. As a result updates to F8,
by any means, leave FC6 packages in place and it is necessary
to employ 'rpm --oldpackage ...' to get the current ones.
I believe that this issue will affect F7->F8 updates as well
(although I did not have yet an opportunity to check).
The -7 releases for Fedora 7 and Fedora 8 were pushed from updates-testing to
updates earlier today and are now available on download.fedora.redhat.com.
