Description Thomas Citharel 2013-07-04 03:30:42 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to upgrade with yum, it says xulrunner requires the nspr >= 4.10.0 version, while the versions are currently written like nspr-4.10-2. So my installed version is not detected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update

Actual results:
Erreur : Paquet : xulrunner-22.0-4.fc19.x86_64 (updates-testing)
             Requiert : nspr >= 4.10.0
             Installé  : nspr-4.10-2.fc19.i686 (@updates)
                 nspr = 4.10-2.fc19
             Disponible : nspr-4.9.6-1.fc19.i686 (fedora)
                 nspr = 4.9.6-1.fc19
 Vous pouvez essayer d'utiliser --skip-broken pour contourner le problème
 Vous pouvez essayer d'exécuter : rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Expected results:
Installation going on.

Additional info:
Just modifying the xulrunner-22.0-4.fc19.x86_64 package SPEC file currently in updates-testing should do it.

Elio, can you please look into it? It seems we're hitting the same problem with nspr vs nspr pkgconfig version mismatch like in rawhide. Thanks.
Comment 3 Elio Maldonado Batiz 2013-07-04 11:53:56 EDT
Yes, this is the same problem as we faced in Rawhide and the same fix applies.

Here is a slightly edited copy of the good explanation Kai provided to our collegues upstream:

The issue is related to pkg-config, which reads our config/nspr.pc file.

The file has a line: 

so the pkg-config system always includes the "patch" version number,
even if it's zero.

Because our build automation uses rules based on the reported version number,
our system package versions follow the versions shown in the tar archive. 
Because the tar archive excludes the patch version, that  resulted in a 
package version without the patch version, which resulted in an unsatisfied lookup, 
if software looks for the version reported by pkg-config.

tar archive: nspr-4.10
package version: nspr-4.10
dependency resolver: looking for nspr-4.10.0

because nspr-4.10 < nspr.4.10.0, the dependency resolution failed.

From this update onwards we include the patch version number in the
package version number. Instead of nspr-4.10 we do nspr-4.10.0
The release tarballs now match the officially used version number.
