The following rpms can be removed from Fedora Extra 4. Sometimes they
are obsoleted sub-rpms not anymore in newer packages, completely renamed
packages or similar stuff.

This is another friendly reminder to all developers and package
maintainers that "XFree86-devel" and "xorg-x11-devel" will no
longer exist in Fedora Core 5.
The current rawhide monolithic xorg-x11 build has had the virtual
"Provides: XFree86-devel" removed to both find out what all packages
were still using it, and also as a heads up to developers and
package maintainers to update their packages, as this is no longer
a valid BuildRequires.
All packages which "BuildRequires: XFree86-devel" or
"BuildRequires: xorg-x11-devel" must be updated to remove this
dependency and replace it with individual BuildRequires for
each library that is needed.
When updating packages for rawhide, be sure to not use xorg-x11-devel
either, because it only exists temporarily for a week or less. Once
modular X goes into rawhide, packages depending on either of these
dependencies will need to be updated in order to build properly, so
it is best to make the change now if possible.
I'd like to thank everyone who has helped update packages so far,
as this helps to minimize the amount of work needed later.
Thanks in advance!
P.S. This email has been sent to fedora-devel-list, however please
feel free to forward this to other developmental mailing lists
which I might not be subscribed to if you think the information
is useful to a wider audience who might not read
I can't seem to find the SRPM for python-numeric in the extras repository (I
checked on download.fedora.redhat.com even). Anyone know where that one is?

Your suggestion works great. Thanks. Here is the bugzilla entry:
I don't have time to upgrade the Firewire related libraries and test
them before the FC5test1 devel freeze. If you care about these packages
(and actually have hardwarew to test it), your assistance would be
appreciated. Please attach spec and source patches to this bug report.
I updated to yum-2.4.0-11 and now if I do a yum update kernel I get the

I know their a lot of broken dependencies in todays rawhide so I am only

The Fedora I18N Team invites you kindly to participate in a survey
to provide feedback on the SCIM (Simple Common Input Method )
platform for Asian language input. Packages are available in Fedora Core
Development and Fedora Extras, and also for RHEL 4.
The survey is available now at
where more details can be found including package installation instructions.
The survey has been translated into the following languages: Bengali, Chinese,
Gujarati, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, and Punjabi.
The goal of the survey is to find out what users see as the main strengths
and weaknesses of SCIM to help provide focus on the most important
improvements needed from the point of view of users.
The survey will run until the end of Friday 25th November, UTC.
We hope to receive lots of responses from a wide part of the community.
A summary of the results will be made available publicly later.
Thank you for your time. And special thanks to the SCIM developers
and community for creating SCIM.

I'm missing libssl.so.5 and I can't run rpm or yum anymore.
Can someone kindly send me openssl 0.9.7f-11 in tar format so I can get
Here below is the output after trying to run yum this am.
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:
libssl.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Please install a package which provides this module, or
verify that the module is installed correctly.
It's possible that the above module doesn't match the
current version of Python, which is:
