Description James Laska 2010-10-15 13:45:18 UTC
Description of problem:

1 gdm requires 'system-logos' capability
2 'system-logos' is provided by
3 fedora-logos and generic-logos provide 'system-logos' capability

However, when installing with 'updates-testing' enabled, generic-logos is newer than fedora-logos.

I know that this is okay for now since generic-logos is only available in updates-testing, but it will be moved into stable soon, and I believe we'll need to ensure that an equal NVR of fedora-logos is available so that yum chooses it over generic-logos?

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

# repoquery -q --whatprovides system-logos
generic-logos-0:14.0.1-1.fc14.noarch
fedora-logos-0:14.0.0-1.fc14.noarch

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F-14-TC1 
2. During install, enabled 'updates-testing' which includes https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/generic-logos-14.0.1-2.fc14,goddard-kde-theme-13.1.0-1.fc14,kde-settings-4.5-9.fc14,laughlin-kde-theme-14.0.0-1.fc14
3. Boot
  
Actual results:

plymouth uses the 'hotdog' theme
firstboot shows 'hotdog' logo
gdm uses wrong theme etc...

Expected results:

No hotdog for final release ;)

Infidel, thou shalt not usurp the reign of the Hot Dog.

Comment 2 Bruno Wolff III 2010-10-15 16:49:15 UTC
One idea that came up in the blocker meeting was the possibility of having generic-logos conflict with fedora-logos with a lower version. This would prevent systems from switching to generic-logos by mistake. I don't think it would help when to composes (e.g. running livecd-creator). But the conflicts should get the issue noticed if there is an accident. I am not sure if there are significant downsides to doing this. It might complicate testing in some cases.

Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2010-10-15 19:14:58 UTC
This is really a bug in generic-logos, to be honest. I'll set a high release on fedora-logos to prevent it from happening trivially.

Honestly? I recommend that the maintainer of that package make sure that they never have a higher N-V-R than fedora-logos.
