Description Florian Hubold 2021-03-27 17:21:23 CET
gnome-weather is missing Requires on gjs, hence it does not start when only installing gnome-weather :

[doktor5000@Mageia8]─[17:15:04]─[~] gnome-weather
bash: /usr/bin/gnome-weather: /usr/bin/gjs: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

Assigning to QA now,


There's a missing required dependency on the gnome-weather package from Mageia 8.
If no other packages pulling 'gjs' are installed on the computer, gnome-weather can't work and does not launch. This update adds this missing dependency.

That dependency used to be automatic, no?. Even if it's not, it should be an automatic dependency.

It seems it was to be an automatic dependency in mga7 but for some unknown reason no more in mga8.

Tested in a 64-bit MGA8 Gnome vbox guest that had been created by upgrading a MGA7 guest. Gnome-weather was already installed, checked it, and it ran OK.

Opened drakrpm and confirmed that both gnome-weather and gjs were already installed. Made as if to remove gjs, and was presented with a list of dependencies that would have to be removed, looking like half the install, but gnome-weather wasn't on the list.

Backed out without removing anything, and used qarepo to update gnome-weather. No installation issues. Then went back to drakrpm and once again made as if to remove gjs. This time, gnome-weather WAS on the list, indicating that gjs was now a dependency. Backed out again, ran gnome-weather, which was still working.

Looks OK to me. Validating. Advisory in Comment 1.
