Works with python-ipyparallel update FEDORA-2018-3fe9e5e2f1

texlive-jadetex-7:20170520-29.fc28 is missing Provides: jadetex that was present in texlive-jadetex-6:svn40855-42.fc28.2texlive-jadetex-6:svn40855-42.fc28.2

This means the package can not be updated because other packages requires this provides:

dnf repoquery --whatrequires jadetex

docbook-utils-pdf-0:0.6.14-44.fc28.noarch

Since we currently are in beta freeze, this will take same time to reach stable. So can we have a buildroot override?

With this I could build js-jsroot in F28 which failed to build with the previous version.

Hi! Did anyone see any issues with this update? The comment above that this EPEL 7 update should have a -1 karma vote because a different EPEL 6 update got a number of -1 karma votes, does not make sense. The issues with the EPEL 6 update do not automatically apply to the EPEL 7 update.

Bash completion works again.

Review request bouncycastle1.58 compat package: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1539134 Anyone that can do a review?

There are two solutions to this.

  1. Update bouncycastle as proposed in the update, but also add a bouncycastle1.46 compat package package that provides /usr/share/java/bcprov-1.46,jar that provides the old version.

  2. Leave the bouncycastle package at the old 1.46 version and add the update as a councycastle1.56 compat package with versioned jars.

Option 1 gives a cleaner state going forward, but option 2 is more backward compatible since it does not change the meaning of the unversioned /usr/share/java/bcprov,jar.

Do you have any preferences?

The StandardSymbolsPS.otf font introduced in this update has broken charmaps. Since fontconfig prefers the .otf version over the .t1 version this is a regression that breaks applications.

See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1534206 for details.

I am aware of the missing dependency. I filed a request in bugzilla to the maintainer - @bowlofeggs - for an EPEL 7 build a week ago: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1530650 - but I haven't had any reply yet.

All architectures are pushed at the same time. It is not possible to request an update of only some of the architectures.

This issue should not exist anymore. All libraries used by "root-config --libs" are listed as requires in the root-core package. This has been the case since version 6.06.08-1 (September 2016). Are you for some reason installing old packages that are no longer available in EPEL? The current version in EPEL stable is 6.10.04-1 and in EPEL testing root-6.10.06-1. Which version are you installing?

$ root-config --libs
-L/usr/lib64/root -lCore -lImt -lRIO -lNet -lHist -lGraf -lGraf3d -lGpad -lTree -lTreePlayer -lRint -lPostscript -lMatrix -lPhysics -lMathCore -lThread -lMultiProc -pthread -lm -ldl -rdynamic

$ rpm -q --requires root-core | grep ^root

Hi Alejandro.

Thank you for your feedback and for investigating the issue and suggesting a solution. I have made a scratch build that implements your fix. Could you confirm that it restores functionality for you.
