Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 587883
boolstuff 0.1.13 is out
Last modified: 2010-05-10 08:21:21 EDT
Description of problem:
I haven't tested is, but the previous version 0.1.12 worked fine, and didn't need the following patches anymore:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Ok, I've removed those patches and it seems to build fine locally.
The package has been updated in rawhide ( http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2154177 ) and F-13 ( http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2154192 ) and F-12 ( http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2154195 ).
Have you checked that the API and ABI didn't changed for the older releases? I vaguely remember at least a change in API.
$ repoquery --whatrequires boolstuff
Those are all RPMs from the boolstuff SRPM.
I am happy to not push the bump to F-12, but it should go to F-13, IMO.

you should better do something along
repoquery --archlist=src --whatrequires boolstuff-devel
repoquery --whatrequires libboolstuff-0.1.so.0
At least halevt requires boolstuff-devel. I guess it is the only dependency.

I tend to disagree, changing API/ABI after the branching seems wrong to me. But you are the maintainer, it is your choice.
F-13 hasn't been released yet; I don't see the harm in upgrading if it doesn't break halevt (which doesn't exist in F-12).
halevt indeed exists in F-12. Or there is something weird going on. The halevt version in fedora is quite old, though. Newer version requires indeed boolstuff 0.1.12 at least because of the API change I talked about.
In fact this could even be a reason for updating in F-13, such that it is possible to rebuild newer halevt versions.
Er, sorry, I misunderstood. halevt doesn't appear to depend on boolstuff in F-12.

That would be quite strange. Are you sure it doesn't depend on boolstuff soname, which should be like libboolstuff-0.1.so.0?
> repoquery --whatrequires libboolstuff-0.1.so.0
wasn't giving me anything earlier; however:
$ repoquery -qR halevt
reports that it does, indeed, require libboolstuff-0.1.so.0()(64bit)
@Patrice: Shall we get a buildroot override and bump halevt in F-13 then?
That would certainly be good. But maybe you could send a mail to the current halevt owner (or to the generic fedora halevt-owner mail alias) before processing.
