Description Christoph Wickert 2009-06-02 11:09:08 UTC
Description of problem:
Currently it is possible to update gstreamer without updating the plugins. This will break and cause bug reports like bug # 503683

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update gstreamer to gstreamer-0.10.23-1.fc11 but do not update gstreamer-plugins-base.
2. run something that uses gstreamer
Actual results:
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/gst-0.10/gst/interfaces.so: undefined symbol:

Expected results:
Plugins should also be updated

Additional info:
Currently gstreamer-plugins-base.spec looks like this:

%define         gstreamer       gstreamer
%define         majorminor      0.10

%define         _gst            0.10.22

Name:           %{gstreamer}-plugins-base
Version:        0.10.23

Requires:       %{gstreamer} >= %{_gst}

I think you should 

Requires:       %{gstreamer} >= %{_gst}

Or would this cause even more problems?

BTW. Use %global instead of %define, see

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Fixed in rawhide by removing the separate _gst macro (which nobody ever updated).

Given that gstreamer and gstreamer-plugins-base are released at the same time, I changed this to require a gstreamer of the same version as the one we're compiling.
