Thread: Mozilla-nspr patch conflict

  1. #1

    Default Mozilla-nspr patch conflict

    I'm using SuSE 11.4 64 bit. I have both Firefox (installed by default from the openSuSE vendor) and I have SeaMonkey 2.2.1-1-x86_64 installed from the mozilla repo (build.opensuse.org/mozilla).
    I saw there were security updates so I went to install them and for mozilla-nspr, yast gave me this warning:
    Code:
    patch mozilla-nspr-5022.noarch conflicts with mozilla-nspr-x86_64 < 4.8.9-1.3.1 provided by mozilla-nspr-4.8.9-1.1 x86_64 
    conflict resolution:
    install with vendor change obs://build.opensuse.org/mozilla --> openSUSE
    So, if I do the suggested vendor change, won't that ruin or conflict with my 64 bit SeaMonkey?

    What prompted the patch? Not kpackagekit?

    Once I switch to a repo like mozilla, I update like this:
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10573557/Sof...tem_update.png

    That way, the original switch should remain. It may be that the openSUSE update repo has a new package as you describe. Don't use packagekit either!

    So, right now I don't know what to do. Should I switch Firefox to the mozilla repo to match SeaMonkey?

    Here are the packages I have for Mozilla, SeaMonkey and Firefox:

    rpm -qa | grep seamonkey

    seamonkey-venkman-2.2-1.1.x86_64
    seamonkey-irc-2.2-1.1.x86_64
    seamonkey-dom-inspector-2.2-1.1.x86_64
    seamonkey-2.2-1.1.x86_64

    rpm -qa | grep mozilla

    mozilla-js20-2.0.1-0.2.2.x86_64
    mozilla-nss-certs-3.12.11-1.3.1.x86_64
    mozilla-xulrunner20-2.0.1-0.2.2.x86_64
    mozilla-nspr-32bit-4.8.7-4.4.x86_64
    mozilla-kde4-integration-0.6.3-3.1.x86_64
    mozilla-xulrunner20-gnome-2.0.1-0.2.2.x86_64
    mozilla-nss-3.12.11-2.1.x86_64
    ca-certificates-mozilla-1.70-3.1.noarch
    mozilla-nspr-4.8.9-1.1.x86_64
    mozilla-nss-32bit-3.12.11-1.3.1.x86_64
    mozilla-nss-certs-32bit-3.12.11-1.3.1.x86_64

    rpm -qa | grep Firefox
    MozillaFirefox-5.0-0.4.1.x86_64
    MozillaFirefox-branding-openSUSE-5.0-2.3.1.x86_64


    So anyway, maybe one of those prompted the patch?

    Leave the switch on the mozilla repo and don't run: zypper patch
    only use zypper up or the method I posted earlier from software management

    I've been using YaST 's online updater for all my updates.

    So, I should switch my Firefox to the Mozilla repo?

    If you are using OBS repos, I would use Software Management, switch to the mozilla repo and do updates as I showed earlier.
    Online Update brings in patches that will break the switch. Not always harmful. But you have my advice. Take it or leave it

    Hello,

    Using openSUSE 11.4 KDE 4.7. Earlier I was prompted by KPackagekit icon on the panel to upgrade, but failed to notice the red X in front of this mozilla-nspr package. Thanks to your advice, I switched to using "zypper up"!

    Code:
    #zypper up
    Code:
    ...
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    
    The following package updates will NOT be installed:
      gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good-lang 
      liblensfun0 libxine1-gnome-vfs libxine1-pulse linphone mozilla-nspr mozilla-nspr-32bit 
      taglib 
    
    Nothing to do.

    I'm on openSUSE 11.3 x64 and had the same issue. I noted that if I refused to install the update it'd keep advising and advising. So I gave a try by changing vendor to obs://build.opensuse.org/mozilla. Now when I open Yast, Software Management and select the Mozilla repo I have mozilla-nspr highlighted in red, which means Mozilla's version seems to be indeed older than openSUSE's version, the one I installed. After reading all posts here I still don't understand what I should do. Should I leave openSUSE's mozilla-nspr (1.2.1) or apply Mozilla switch to install back older version (1.1)? Is it harmful? By the way, I have Mozilla 6.0.

    Typically we let the switch have priority. That means, if you are using the mozilla repo, the packages would be from that repo.

    But if anyone is concerned to the extent that they cannot feel comfortable with that. Then let them try updating that package. It may be fine.

    My package doesn't show red. So maybe you never applied the switch (Or perhaps 11.3 differs slightly I don't recall)
