Description Jon Burgess 2008-12-08 20:45:46 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):
geos-3.0.1-1.fc10.x86_64 (current)
geos-3.0.3-1.fc10.x86_64 (update)

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F10 release versions of qgis & geos
2. Attempt yum update to latest geos
Actual results:
  --> Missing Dependency: libgeos-3.0.1.so()(64bit) is needed by package qgis-0.11.0-3.fc10.x86_64 (installed)

Expected results:

Additional info:
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?
Comment 1 Jon Burgess 2008-12-08 20:54:03 EST
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:
Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2008-12-09 09:02:36 EST
qgis-0.11.0-4.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2008-12-09 19:32:20 EST
Please do use updates-testing for such updates and ask releng to buildroot override tags, so you can prepare group updates.
Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2008-12-09 23:37:39 EST
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.
Comment 6 Alex Lancaster 2008-12-14 03:16:17 EST
qgis-0.11.0-4.fc10 has now finally been pushed to the repo (yum install qgis works), so closing bug.
