Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-02-10 20:24:56 EST
Description of problem:
F-spot currently bundles its own copy of Mono.Addins, rather than using the one from the mono-addins(-devel) packages.

This is against the guidelines, and causes RPM to wrongfully assume that f-spot provides mono(Mono.Addins), meaning installing other mono-addins-using apps such as Tomboy or Banshee does not pull in mono-addins
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove mono-addins, if installed. Remove its dependents
2. Install f-spot
3. rpm -q --whatprovides "mono(Mono.Addins)"
4. Install tomboy or banshee
5. Run tomboy or banshee

Actual results:
3): $ rpm -q --whatprovides "mono(Mono.Addins)"

5): fails, since f-spot's private copy of Mono.Addins is not in the expected location
Expected results:
f-spot should not provide mono-addins

Additional info:
Comment 1 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-02-11 08:59:45 EST
Another problem: if installing F-10 from local media only, Tomboy works fine on the default desktop. If the update repository is enabled during install, the copy of f-spot that faux-provides Mono.Addins is pulled in, and thus Tomboy is broken.
Comment 2 Stijn Hoop 2009-05-19 05:02:07 EDT
Tomboy was crashing on my system because of this bug. I see that there is a newer f-spot build for Fedora 11 that fixes this problem, can this be redone for Fedora 10 as well?

Comment 3 Christian Krause 2009-07-31 11:40:59 EDT
Problem is fixed in CVS, however it revealed another minor bug in mono-addins. Once that is fixed, I'll push out an update.
