Rebuild gdb-heap against the latest glibc
Last modified: 2012-08-07 12:09:38 EDT
Description of problem:
There was a recent glibc security update:
Unfortunately, yum doesn't want to update the glibc package due to a dependency resolution error:
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: gdb-heap-0.5-5.fc15.x86_64 (@updates)
Requires: glibc(x86-64) = 2.14
Removing: glibc-2.14-5.x86_64 (@updates)
glibc(x86-64) = 2.14-5
Updated By: glibc-2.14.1-5.x86_64 (updates)
glibc(x86-64) = 2.14.1-5
Available: glibc-2.13.90-9.x86_64 (fedora)
glibc(x86-64) = 2.13.90-9
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
Could you rebuild gdb-heap against the latest glibc?

Isn't this just a DUPLICATE of Bug 665799?
Use Python auto-loading
Hmm... I don't understand the details of bug 665799, but the problem of this bug is at the level of RPM dependencies.
The latest gdb-heap: gdb-heap-0.5-5.fc15.x86_64 requires glibc(x86-64) = 2.14 and the newest glibc package: glibc-2.14.1-5.x86_64 provides glibc(x86-64) = 2.14.1-5.
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
