Synergy has version checking that prevents sharing the mouse/keyboard/clipboard
between different versions. As Mageia 8 is being released with version 1.13.0,
the Mageia 7 version should be updated too.
https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Updates_policy#Version_Policy has an exception for
"Software that is version-bound to an online service (games, virus scanners?) and will only work with the latest version."
In this case the online service is provided by a Mageia 8 system on the same lan,
so the exception requirement is met.
Assigning to daviddavid who did the Mageia 8 update for synergy.
Done for mga7 in Core/Updates_testing repo!
Advisory committed to svn as ...
subject: Updated synergy packages fix compatibility with Mageia 8
As synergy only works between systems on a lan running the same version,
this update syncs the version with Mageia 8, allowing synergy to be used
on systems running both Mageia 7 and 8 on a lan.
No regressions found testing the update between two desktop systems both
running Mageia 7. I'll configure my Mageia 8 system later.
Validating the update.
Oops. Really validating.
An update for this issue has been pushed to the Mageia Updates repository.
