Conflicts between firefox-debuginfo and thunderbird-debuginfo rpms
Last modified: 2008-03-15 14:33:51 EDT
Description of problem:
Conflicts when install firefox-debuginfo and thunderbird-debuginfo.
In order to provide good bug reports it should always be possible to install
debuginfo packages, and they should collide.
from install of firefox-debuginfo-184.108.40.206-2.fc8.i386 conflicts with file from
- and 20 other like this
This should be (hopefully) easy to fix.
Unfortunately, it apparently isn't. Reporter I am sorry, but you have to use rpm
-ivh --force to install those packages.
Even though it isn't an "easy fix" I assume that it is something that should be
fixed and eventually will be fixed.
At this point, we're going to only be taking security fixes and major stability
fixes into this release of Fedora. However, we still want to ensure the bug is
fixed in the next version. We'd appreciate if you could test Firefox 3,
available at http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html or now shipping
as the default in Fedora rawhide and provide feedback as to whether it still
exists so we can file a ticket upstream to try to fix it in Firefox 3 before it
Matej: comment #4 and #5 seems to be a bulk comment. This issue is regarding
conflicts between debuginfo of two fedora packages, and AFAIK it has nothing to
do with upstream. So I assume that the comment doesn't apply. It has to be
tested with packages from F9-testing (which I haven't installed yet).
Also, I assume that in F9 XulRunner will change the packaging completely, so
this issue probably can't survive and thus could be closed.
*** Bug 433200 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This bug really is due to the fact that firefox and xulrunner in rawhide use the
same source. And in F8, firefox and thunderbird use the same source. Not
really a good way to fix that...
Honzo, do you have any ideas what to do, please?

A draft %setup -c patch
I wrote about the problem in Bug 433200 Comment 4 (starting with "OTOH" there)
although it was for firefox vs. xulrunner (not firefox vs. thunderbird).
(It was wrongly talking about `%prep -c', it should be `%setup -c'.)
rpm strips out the /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/ part and the rest should be
system-unique. It is not for firefox vs. thunderbird (vs. xulrunner).
The patch moves the build from the current
(It is just a draft, please finish it yourself, I expect some `cd mozilla' is
missing in its %install part.)
Guide for the `%setup -c' and other rpm options is at:
Thanks, Jan. I just committed fixes to rawhide for xulrunner, firefox,
thunderbird, and seamonkey.
