Description David Kovalsky 2007-03-21 08:56:44 UTC
I'm not sure if the report should go to libetpan or sylpheed claws, but since
you're the maintainer for both ... :-)

I'm installing sylpheed-claws with yum:

yum install sylpheed-claws
--> Populating transaction set with selected packages. Please wait.
---> Downloading header for sylpheed-claws to pack into transaction set.
sylpheed-claws-2.6.0-1.fc 100% |=========================|  17 kB    00:00     
---> Package sylpheed-claws.i386 0:2.6.0-1.fc5 set to be updated
--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Dependency: for package: sylpheed-claws
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: is needed by package sylpheed-claws

I have libetpan coincidently installed:
# rpm -ql libetpan

Comment 1 Andreas Bierfert 2007-03-21 09:09:05 UTC
Thanks for reporting this. If you want to use claws please do a 'yum install
claws-mail'. It is strange that yum does not pick up the Provides from the
claws-mail package as it provide sylpheed-claws... Maybe all sylpheed-claws
packages should be removed from the repo.

Comment 2 David Kovalsky 2007-03-21 10:32:59 UTC
Hi Andreas,

claws-mail works fine. 

Back to sylpheed-claws - I remember reading (I think it was fedora-extras-list)
that there's some cleanup script that purges the repository of packages that are
(considered some criteria) old. 
IIRC it keeps 2 latest version of packages, removes libs that are not linked
from any packages and does a few more checks. Can't remeber the detail or
when/on which list it appeared.

It probably also should have cought this, but it didn't.

Comment 3 Andreas Bierfert 2007-03-21 10:44:01 UTC
Hm yes, it probably does not look at the provides. I will see for a good way to
get this cleaned up...

Comment 4 Andreas Bierfert 2007-04-27 09:11:25 UTC
sylpheed-claws has been removed from the fc5 repo (thanks Michael). This bug can
be closed.
