Description of problem:
When I upgraded from F14 to F15, pilot-link-libs's obsolete for pilot-link caused pilot-link (which contains the udev rules) to be removed. As a result, pilot-link cannot open the USB device and segfaults because it does not null check the return from usb_open.
If you just wanted pilot-link-libs to be pulled in on upgrade, the require from pilot-links is sufficient to do that. Having two different packages obsolete the same package is generally bogus.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Did not retry
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have pilot-link-0.12.5-2.fc14 installed.
2. Upgrade to F15 packages.
3. Start gpilotd and try to sync.
pilot-link is removed; segfault.
pilot-link is upgraded; successful sync.
fixed in rawhide:
Removed obsolete line and added required pilot-link-libs subpackage to the main package.
