Also, pvm needs to be rebuilt on rawhide against the new Tcl 8.5, currently it
has been the broken dep report for almost a week:

        pvm-gui - 3.4.5-7.fc6.1.i386 requires libtk8.4.so
        pvm-gui - 3.4.5-7.fc6.1.i386 requires libtcl8.4.so
Is the maintainer active?  The last koji build from this user was back in October:


and this package hasn't been rebuilt since FC-6.

(Also, if the ACLs weren't locked down, other maintainers could help fix this).
Comment 3 Doug Ledford 2008-01-09 10:21:15 EST
Actually, can't we just kill pvm?  It was long ago supposedly replaced by LAM,
and that was so long ago that LAM has been replaced by openmpi.  I consider pvm
a deprecated (at best) technology.  So, if someone else wants it, they can have
it.  I've more or less got my hands full taking care of openmpi, lam, all
InfiniBand related packages, and all InfiniBand related kernel code.
Comment 4 Alex Lancaster 2008-01-09 11:40:14 EST
If you don't want to maintain you can orphan it via PackageDB and/or allow
cvsextras users to modify the packages (or both), currently nobody else can fix it:


I can pick it up and maintain it (at least in the short term).
Comment 5 Doug Ledford 2008-01-09 13:22:02 EST
Thanks for the link.  Package orphaned.
Comment 6 Alex Lancaster 2008-01-10 01:47:17 EST
Patch applied and now built successfully in rawhide:


closing bug.
Comment 7 Alex Lancaster 2008-01-10 01:48:08 EST
Also I opened up ACLs so that package can be fixed any Fedora contributor in the
