View Full Version : libbobobo-update
31st July 2004, 11:17 AM
I did a regular update with yum and it updated libonobo and libonobo-devel. Now I have problems with some applications. Evolution is missing all windows, some gnome panel buttons are gone and nautilus reports errors. I think it's about the patch in the orbit package that some of us applied to make nautilus run.
Is there a possibility to downgrade the updated packages again (didn't find one in man yum) or has anyone a better idea?

sorry about the typing error in the title... should be libbonobo, of course

O.K. seems like a false alarm... I tried it the Microsoft way and after the second re-boot it seems like it is working normally again... strange...

did you try hust restarting X by loging out and back in or pressing Ctrl+Alt+Backspace?

Yeah, sure, 5 or 6 times, also tried to log-in into KDE. There I had no gnome problems (obviously) but evolution failed also. But now, after rebooting everything seems to work again...

I had the same problem.
I just reinstalled the old packages and everything is running fine again.
I am not gonna install those new packages until my next reboot (maybe not until FC3?). I hate rebooting :D

Well, it's still working. Just to be curious, how did you reinstall the old packages? This was part of the pestion in my first post in this thread...

first I downloaded the original libbonobo and libbonobo-devel files.
then I installed them with
# rpm -ivh --force libbonobo*
then I checked which versions are installed
# rpm -qa |grep libbonobo
it listed me all the rpm's with this name. I saw the old and new ones sitting together, so I had to uninstall the new-version ones.
# rpm -e libbonobo-<version number> libbonobo-devel-<version number>
after that for a double check I did the rpm -qa again to see if the old version is safely there. and it was
so rather then uninstalling the new version, then installing the old one, I switched the order:) I don't know of any other way of downgrading an rpm
