Description Michal Jaegermann 2012-10-02 15:09:52 EDT
Description of problem:

With emacs-auctex-el installed an attempt to update to the current version of emacs-auctex fails with the following:

Error: Package: emacs-auctex-el-11.86-8.fc18.noarch (@rawhide/18)
           Requires: emacs-auctex = 11.86-8.fc18

(and this prevents an update to tex-preview as well). A changelog for the new
package says:

* Wed Sep 19 2012 Karel Klíč <kklic@redhat.com> - 11.86-9
- ELisp source code is no longer distributed in a separate package

So far so good but the corresponding "obsoletes" is clearly missing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Jonathan Underwood 2012-10-03 09:15:46 EDT
OK, this package has:

Obsoletes:      emacs-auctex-el <= 11.86-8
Provides:       emacs-auctex-el <= 11.86-8

so the obsoletes isn't missing. It's not quite clear to me why this isn't handled correctly by yum/rpm during the transaction, but I think that if I change this to:

Obsoletes:      emacs-auctex-el <= 11.86-9
Provides:       emacs-auctex-el <= 11.86-9

then it will fix the problem.

Yes, this indeed works and an update removes emacs-auctex-el.

No idea what kind of log in this wants from me and I have not the slightest intention to find out.
