Description Ed Hill 2005-06-21 13:42:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
yum update reports:

  "Error: Missing Dependency: octave = 2.1.71-9.fc4 is needed by package octave-devel"

and this is most likely due to a missing epoch in a Requires field of the octave.spec file.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update

confirmed, octave has epoch 6

Comment 2 Ed Hill 2005-06-23 12:35:02 UTC
Hi Quentin,  I just did "yum install octave\*" on both FC3 and FC4 systems and
it all worked nicely.  Thank you for fixing this so quickly!

Comment 3 Quentin Spencer 2005-06-23 13:58:15 UTC
The missing epoch was indeed the problem. This is now fixed in octave-2.1.71-12,
and I'm closing this.
