Description Need Real Name 2002-02-04 08:56:04 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; Q312461)

Description of problem:
gnome-libs and gnome-libs-devel conflict with db1 
package, /usr/bin/db1_dump185, /usr/lib/libdb1.so.2 and /usr/lib/libdb1.a

Surely db1 should either be required, or superceded, or the conflicting files 
should have different names if they are special to that gnome-libs build.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try and install gnome-libs- and gnome-libs-devel- on 
a system with db1 installed

Actual Results:  Fails of course with rpm conflict reported

Expected Results:  Should have succeeded

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-02-04 16:05:50 UTC
I was advised not to Obsoletes: db1 for now, I'm not sure of the rationale.

The files can't be renamed since that would change the libgnomeui ABI.

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-02-05 15:35:05 UTC
What about the ABI of things using db1 if we force the install, or lets compare 
breaking the abi to not being able to install it at all.

It's a rawhide build, lets break the abi of libgnomeui and stick a few >= in 
the requires lines.

If I haven't grasped something, please let me know.

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-02-05 16:39:54 UTC
Yes, we can't break the ABI. It being rawhide isn't relevant, rawhide gets
released eventually.

You shouldn't need the db1 package, is the idea. i.e. remove it.

Comment 5 Need Real Name 2002-02-27 08:28:28 UTC
In that case can we at least have "Conflicts: db1" in the spec files.
