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Surely db1 should either be required, or superceded, or the conflicting files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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try and install gnome-libs-18.104.22.168.90-9 and gnome-libs-devel-22.214.171.124.90-9 on
a system with db1 installed
Actual Results: Fails of course with rpm conflict reported
Expected Results: Should have succeeded
I was advised not to Obsoletes: db1 for now, I'm not sure of the rationale.

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.
Yes, we can't break the ABI. It being rawhide isn't relevant, rawhide gets
You shouldn't need the db1 package, is the idea. i.e. remove it.

In that case can we at least have "Conflicts: db1" in the spec files.
