calibre.x86_64 0:2.12.0-1.fc21 misses the following dependencies:  qt5-qtlocation , qt5-qtsensors.

Steps to reproduce: install calibre for example on a fresh F21 system.

The following errors appear:

Manual installation of the packages is a working work-around.

# yum deplist --enablerepo=updates-testing calibre-2.15.0-2.fc21 | grep qt5 

The dependencies don't seem to be updated. This still fixes it:

# sudo yum remove calibre qt5-qtlocation.x86_64 qt5-qtsensors.x86_64

Comment 4 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2015-01-08 14:57:26 UTC
calibre-2.15.0-2.fc21.x86_64 requires python-qt5 >= 5.4-5.fc21,
and python-qt5-5.4-5.fc21.x86_64 requires and which are provided by qt5-qtsensors-5.4.0-2.fc21.x86_64 and qt5-qtlocation-5.4.0-2.fc21.x86_64.

On my system, removing either of those packages results in calibre being uninstalled.

I cannot reproduce your error.

Comment 7 Olga Maciaszek-Sharma 2015-02-15 22:05:08 UTC
I could install calibre via yum, and then I could launch it for the first time and the configuration window opened, but then it stopped working and the main window is never launched. Removing it and reinstalling again doesn't work either.

I have also tried installing it via the gui package installation tool. - this doesn' work at all - calibre is not being installed.

(In reply to Olga Maciaszek-Sharma from comment #7)
Open a new bug report. In this, specify what calibre version, yum version you have. Try running calibre from a terminal window, and paste the output.
