Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 493956
unknown incompatibility between 0.10.9-3.el5 and 0.10.20-3.el5
Last modified: 2014-12-15 21:18:14 EST
pidgin 2.5.5-1.el5 was built against gstreamer 0.10.20-3.el5 and works fine with that version of gstreamer. However, it doesn't work with the version of gstreamer in RHEL 5.2: 0.10.9-3.el5. Yet, those two versions of gstreamer identify as being ABI-compatible:
$ rpm -q --provides -p `find_package gstreamer-0.10.9-3.el5.i386`
gstreamer = 0.10.9-3.el5
$ rpm -q --provides -p `find_package gstreamer-0.10.20-3.el5.i386`
gstreamer = 0.10.20-3.el5
$ rpm -qRp `find_package pidgin-2.5.5-1.el5.i386` | grep libgs
I would expect that a package that Requires libgstreamer-0.10.so.0 would work with gstreamer-0.10.9-3.el5.i386.
