CUPS version blocks upgrade from F8 to F9
Last modified: 2008-05-14 04:09:28 EDT
Description of problem:
The CUPS version/release in F9 appears to be lower than that in F8. This
prevents a Yum upgrade of the system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
In F8: 1:1.3.7-2.fc8
In F9: 1:1.3.7-1.fc9
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update fedora-release-*.noarch.rpm
2. Other steps from http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/YumUpgradeFaq
3. yum upgrade
Error: Missing Dependency: libldap-2.3.so.0 is needed by package cups
Removing cups should get the upgrade to work. However, this also removes
several other packages.
Same problem with x86_64 architecture.
Or you could undo the security fix that had to be made (by downgrading to
cups-1.3.7-1.fc8 or the F-8 shipped cups version), which was the reason for the
F-8 release number bump.
This sort of thing is always going to happen sooner or later; it's unfortunate
that a security issue caused this to happen sooner in this case.
