Qgis needs rebuild for latest geos update
Last modified: 2008-12-14 03:16:17 EST
Description of problem:
Updating to the latest geos fails due to qgis dependency on old geos version
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F10 release versions of qgis & geos
2. Attempt yum update to latest geos
--> Missing Dependency: libgeos-3.0.1.so()(64bit) is needed by package qgis-0.11.0-3.fc10.x86_64 (installed)
Is libgeos-3.0.1.so actually the right dependency? Surely geos-3.0.3 should be backwards compatible, or is this a packaging bug in geos?
About the library versioning, it looks like the geos folks deliberately declare the C++ API as being unstable and thus force a rebuild against each release:
qgis-0.11.0-4.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
Please do use updates-testing for such updates and ask releng to buildroot override tags, so you can prepare group updates.
qgis-0.11.0-4.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
In case people are wondering why this broken dep is still present, apparently some bug in koji or bodhi means that although the updates system thinks the package has been pushed to updates (aka "stable"), actually it hasn't appeared on the mirrors in the repodata yet. A bug with release engineering has been filed:
Re-opening until this is fixed.
qgis-0.11.0-4.fc10 has now finally been pushed to the repo (yum install qgis works), so closing bug.
