Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 455923
gxine depends on gecko-libs 1.9 - can't update after xulrunner 188.8.131.52-1 release
Last modified: 2008-07-26 02:03:55 EDT
Description of problem:
gxine-0.5.11-17.fc9 depends on gecko-libs 1.9. The release of xulrunner
184.108.40.206-1.fc9, breaks that dependency.
At a minimum, gxine needs to be rebuilt (and possibly have it's dependency
relaxed to allow updates to gecko-libs)
The problem is the same as bug 455659 filed against RHEL5.
Hm... IIRC, there was some switch in xulrunner to stable and unstable things,
and I believe gxine uses only the supposedly stable API, so I might loosen the
dependency a bit. Anyway, this should have been rebuilt and released in batch
with the xulrunner update, or at least the update should have been mentioned on
devel list, which it wasn't - and result is lots of broken deps, one of which is
I'll rebuild it right away.

As commented at
Looks good from there, thanks very much for the quick turnaround.
Does Fedora track dependency issues which might crop up during updates like what
happened here? It would be nice if issues like this could be avoided in the
future (perhaps something for another bug or discussion on the -devel list, I'll
have to check the archives)

Well, we (maintainers) get e-mail noticing broken deps, however this happens
only after the broken deps are already in the repos... Would be nice if bodhi
(our update system) blocked updates that break deps, since there is no point in
releasing security fix, if you cannot install it due to broken deps... There has
been some discussion (without definite conclusion) both on test and devel lists
regarding this issue, as with firefox/xulrunner this happens almost every time a
version bump in firefox/xulrunner occurs.
gxine-0.5.11-18.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
