Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 981166
The xulrunner required version of nspr cannot be found
Last modified: 2013-09-09 11:40:42 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update
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
Installation going on.
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.
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.
nspr-4.10.0-3.fc19 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 19.
nspr-4.10.0-3.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
