Unless the development version of seamonkey is different than the FC5-extras version, it just installs seamonkey. It does not obsolete mozilla for FC5 anyway.

Following a model used in RHEL I did my own repackaging of seamonkey
for FC5 to obsolete mozilla packages and to provide suitably high
version of mozilla as well.  Maybe something of that sort should be
done for FC6 to avoid update problems?  It is actually simpler in
FC6 as there are no packages to recompile because they depend
on mozilla (on some mozilla supplied libraries to be more precise).

Should this be put in bugzilla?


Since mozilla will remain at the same version as it is from FC5, other packages will be held from being updated, as with the original posters problem. If FC6 (and current development) could pull in seamonkey if mozilla is installed and seamonkey was not yet installed for the FC5 to FC6 upgrade path, a lot of potential upgrade problems would be avoided.

How are current FC5 to FC6Test versions handling the mozilla orphaning? Are the upgrade attempts removing mozilla, disregarding the possible conflicts mozilla being stale could cause, or are they removing mozilla from upgraded systems?

I think after the rambling, your suggestion for the repackaging of seamonkey for FC6 would work out great to overcome potential problems from all upgrades backward of FC6. FC5 is of course alright, nothing conflicts with mozilla as of today. :-)


No matter how much you do you never do enough.
