Description ahoros 2013-07-14 07:55:50 EDT
Description of problem:
after recent update to boost libraries dependency for boost-static version 686
on 64bit version of Fedora 19
became broken

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

How reproducible:
[root@fedora19beta ]# yum install boost-static.i686
Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit
Resolving Dependencies
--> Running transaction check
---> Package boost-static.i686 0:1.53.0-6.fc19 will be installed
--> Processing Dependency: boost-devel = 1.53.0-6.fc19 for package: boost-static-1.53.0-6.fc19.i686
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: boost-static-1.53.0-6.fc19.i686 (fedora)
           Requires: boost-devel = 1.53.0-6.fc19
           Installed: boost-devel-1.53.0-7.fc19.i686 (@updates)
               boost-devel = 1.53.0-7.fc19
           Available: boost-devel-1.53.0-6.fc19.i686 (fedora)
               boost-devel = 1.53.0-6.fc19
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
[root@fedora19beta ]# 

Steps to Reproduce:
just try to install it or upgrade it 

Actual results:
Error for Dependency Resolution

Expected results:
both 64 bit and 32 bit packages of boost-static should install automatically

I don't see this problem.  I can't seem to reproduce it in mock.  Could you paste output of "yum list boost\*" please?
Comment 2 Petr Machata 2013-07-19 13:09:26 EDT
Ah, I understand the problem now.  Reproducer on x86_64 machine:

# yum install boost-static boost
# yum install boost-static.i686

The first installs 1.53.0-7.fc19, the second then attempts to get in boost-static-1.53.0-6.fc19, which fails.  I don't really understand why static-6 is available and static-7 not.  Maybe -6 is what got out of rawhide stage, and was therefore in -fedora, but was omitted from -updates?  There's some rationale in bug 837901, but it appears as if static should have been made available.

Anyway, currently I suspect the problem is not in boost, and am switching this over to mash, like bug 837901 was.

Also note that we got this fat warning, which is obviously related to the original problem:
Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 13:54:35 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-17 11:08:43 EST
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
