Error when trying to install xfce4-mixer:

# dnf install xfce4-mixer

Error: installed package xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin-0.2.4-4.fc24.x86_64 obsoletes xfce4-mixer <= 4.11 provided by xfce4-mixer-4.10.0-10.fc24.x86_64
(try to add '--allowerasing' to command line to replace conflicting packages)

Right, we were going to retire xfce4-mixer in favor of xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin. 

We recently started a discussion with upstream to see if xfce4-mixer is even going to be maintained moving forward:

Does xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin not meet your needs?

Comment 2 Fomalhaut 2016-07-24 22:33:11 UTC
Sorry, I did not understand correctly. Besides unfamiliarity + xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin satisfies all. :-)
Thank you.

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2016-07-25 00:49:14 UTC
ok great. We still need to decide if we are going to fully retire xfce4-mixer or not, but glad that xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin meets your needs.

Based on the upstream replies, I am wondering if we might remove the obsoletes after all ,,,

But, let me start this on the xfce@fedora mailing list tomorrow. Perhaps, this bug could be closed?

Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2016-07-26 02:10:52 UTC
I'm fine with dragging it along further for now... sure, we can close this if you like.

Comment 6 Mukundan Ragavan 2016-07-26 02:13:24 UTC
Perfect. Will continue xfce4-mixer vs. xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin on xfce@fedora.

Closing this as ERRATA.
