kicker-compiz is obsolete and should be retired
Last modified: 2008-02-08 11:10:56 EST
Description of problem:
kicker-compiz serves no useful purpose under a KDE 4 session and should
therefore be retired for Fedora 9 and later according to the procedure under:
It also has broken dependencies due to the kicker libraries no longer being
available in Rawhide.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Any, under Fedora >= 9.
kicker-compiz-3.5.4-4.fc8.i386 requires libkickermain.so.1
kicker-compiz-3.5.4-4.fc8.i386 requires libtaskmanager.so.1
I already plan to push kicker-compiz to EOF (currently no maintain it in rawhide).
until F-7 will be set to EOF as well.
You can (and should!) mark it dead.package in the devel branch and ask rel-eng
to block it from Rawhide right now (
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/PackageEndOfLife steps 1, 2, 3
and 5). (When to put the package into RetiredPackages (step 4) is unclear to
me.) That way, it will stop showing up in the broken dependency reports and it
will also automatically go EOL once F8 (not F7) goes EOL.
pkg blocked. I think we can close this now.
