epiphany-extensions dependencies block a security update
Last modified: 2009-08-05 00:45:37 EDT
Description of problem:
An attempt to apply the latests firefox/xulrunner security updates ends up with:
--> Processing Dependency: gecko-libs = 18.104.22.168 for package: epiphany-extensions-2.24.3-2.fc10.x86_64
---> Package xulrunner.x86_64 0:22.214.171.124-1.fc10 set to be updated
---> Package yelp.x86_64 0:2.24.0-11.fc10 set to be updated
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
epiphany-extensions-2.24.3-2.fc10.x86_64 from installed has depsolving problems
--> Missing Dependency: gecko-libs = 126.96.36.199 is needed by package epiphany-extensions-2.24.3-2.fc10.x86_64 (installed)
Error: Missing Dependency: gecko-libs = 188.8.131.52 is needed by package epiphany-extensions-2.24.3-2.fc10.x86_64 (installed)
The only way forward is to deinstall epiphany-extensions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always if epiphany-extensions is installed
On Fedora 11 currently firefox updates are messed up by epiphany dependency (see bug 513360) so this "masks" epiphany-extensions; but once that is fixed the same problem will show up there too.
epiphany-extensions-2.24.3-3.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
I thought that whoever bumps gecko-libs is responsible for rebuilding all dependent packages, how did this particular package get overlooked?
epiphany-extensions-2.24.3-3.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
