Description of problem:
xulrunner packages appear on two gui package updater, and older package
repeatedly needs to be installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1) 1.9-0.38cvs20080310.fc9: Supposedly replaces 1.9beta2.12nightly20080121.fc9
- shows up repeatedly after application on Older Package Updater
2) 1.9-0.40cvs20080312.fc9: Referenced by another GUI "System Updater as a
prerequisite (as in >= pkg####) for installation.
I'm unable to raise Firefox as well - IANAGeckoDeveloper; but IIRC, Firefox
uses XUL. From the other bugs listed, I presume that the pkg is related to my

The allegedly "New" System Update with latest (phantom?) xulrunner version
Neither update takes hold - all I get is an endless loop asking to install the
same updates all over again.
I get the same results for the Yum on Terminal and for Yum Extender GUI (both
for the latest xulrunner) as well.
this is what I have installed thus far:
rpm -q xulrunner
rpm -q firefox

Here's a scrnshot of xulrunner pkgs listed in Add/Remove Software.
What are the consequences of downloading and installing Firefox directly from Mozilla?
Will it interfere with Fedora's release?
I am afraid that this is dupe of bug xulrunner-cpio. What happens when you
remove the old xulrunner and then reinstall?
sorry, hyperlinking doesn't work that well -- bug 433096 is what I meant.
Definitely a dupe. That's the last version before the cpio thing happened.
Only way to fix it is for you to do rpm -e -nodeps xulrunner && yum install

I tried the -e option over the weekend. The --nodeps and reinstall worked.
