Python 2.7 security updates cause dependency problem for system-config-display
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:21:54 EST
Description of problem:
ERROR with transaction check vs depsolve:
python(abi) = 2.6 is needed by system-config-display-2.2-1.fc12.x86_64
Please report this error at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Fedora&version=rawhide&component=yum
while using Software Update from systemtools submenu
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Im running F-16, error message says rawhide, Im reporting as rawhide
Steps to Reproduce:
I get past error by deselecting the python-2.7 security updates.
It appears that system-config-display needs new-release,
specifying dependency on 2.7, or perhaps 2.6+
What does "yum check" say?
system-config-display is not available in Fedora 15, so my guess is it's gone in rawhide too ... so you probably need to remove that package to upgrade python (likely anaconda forced it).
