up2date-2.9.33-7.x.9 fails to run
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:58:43 EST
This is a 2 part bugreport. First, the up2date which came with limbo2 didn't
calculate the dependencies correctly when i tried to update some packages just
now. Since i've got gstreamer-0.4.0 installed and that requires the rc3 version
of vorbis-tools/libogg/libvorbis i specifically deselected those packages in the
After calculating the dependencies it apparently ignored what i did and used
those newer packages anyway, resulting in a conflict where gstreamer will not
work with the 1.0 packages of ogg vorbis.
Thinking this might be fixed in a newer version of up2date (rawhide), i
downloaded & updated my up2date packages. I downloaded & installed the following
That last one is required by up2date.
After succesfully updating the packages, i tried to run up2date again without
success. It immediately returns with an error:
[root@anduril Downloads]# up2date

Perhaps i need to update another (python?) dependency, but i have no idea which one.
This sounds like bug 70852, though fixing the dependencies won't get this
version of up2date to work.
rpm change broke this, should be fixed in 2.9.35 or so
Fix confirmed with up2date-2.9.45-1.
