Description of problem:
Im unable to compose images for f16 due to at-spi-python needing pyorbit which was removed from fedora in the orphan cleanup
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Discussed in the 2011-07-29 blocker review meeting. Accepted as a F16 alpha blocker as it prevents the creation of ISO compose and therefore prevents farther testing.
Any updates on this bug report? This bug is blocking F16 Alpha composes. Any additional delays in composing Alpha test ISO's are likely to cause a schedule slip.
Who can help move this forward?
I was able to work around this dependency problem by excluding the at-spi packages and deps. I do not know whether this breaks the desktop in any way, but it did allow a private compose test to complete.
The kickstart file I'm using contains the following exclusions:
repo --name=fedora --mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-$releasever&arch=$basearch --exclude kernel*debug* --exclude kernel-kdump* --exclude syslog-ng --exclude java-1.5.0- gcj-devel --exclude astronomy-bookmarks --exclude generic* --exclude java-1.5.0-gcj-javadoc --exclude btanks* --exclude GConf2-dbus* --exclude bluez-gnome --exclude netxen-firmware --exclude pyatspi -- exclude gnome-python2-bonobo
%packages --nobase --ignoremissing
I think the best thing to do (at this point anyway) is to unblock pyorbit. Dennis, can you do that? I'll take ownership of it.
there was some concern that pyorbit doesn't build, but it does:
building new pyorbit now:
Similar to 726743, I think with the re-introduction of pyorbit, we can close this, right?
well, I'm not sure if the pyorbit package is truly in f16: it was built right around the branch, and has no update request. Koji shows it as only tagged f16-updates-candidate . Ray, it would probably be good to submit an update request for it.
pyorbit-2.24.0-9.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
This appears to be in 'stable' now, and has already confirmed to fix the broken deps

Correction, will be in 'stable' when the next push from testing->stable occurs
pyorbit-2.24.0-9.fc16 has been pushed to the Fedora 16 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
