Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 800137
xulrunner no longer provides directory required by other packages
Last modified: 2012-03-05 15:23:06 EST
Description of problem:
xulrunner up to at least version 188.8.131.52-2.el5_7 provided /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins The current version 10.0.1-2.el5_8 does not provide that directory. Nothing does.
This results in an error:
1:java-1.6.0-sun-plugin-184.108.40.206-1jpp.1.el5.i586 ... has depsolving problems
Missing Dependency: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins needed by ...
Yum update fails due to the depsolving failure.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% of the time
Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
2.yum install xulrunner
3.rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
Only the first query contains xulrunner
Both rpm queries should contain xulrunner
The environment I'm working in has no provision for a local redhat based system to be connected to the internet. This requires me to use mrepo to synchronize to rhn offsite and transfer deltas of the update repository to a local repository. It is possible that this provision has been moved to another package, however I've been unable to locate any references on-line to that event and my repository does not have it.
