Relaxing Dependency Constraints

Some of the incorporations listed above use facet.version-lock.* facets to enable the administrator to use the pkg change-facet command to relax the constraint to the incorporation for the specified packages. See Relaxing Constraints on Installable Package Versions for more information.

For example, the pkg:/consolidation/userland/userland-incorporation package contains the following facet.version-lock.* definitions:

depend type=incorporate \
    fmri=pkg:/library/python-2/subversion@1.6.16- \
depend type=incorporate \
    fmri=pkg:/library/security/libassuan@2.0.1- \
depend type=incorporate \
    fmri=pkg:/library/security/openssl/openssl-fips-140@1.2- \
depend type=incorporate fmri=pkg:/mail/fetchmail@6.3.21- \
depend type=incorporate \
    fmri=pkg:/network/chat/ircii@0.2006.7.25- \
depend type=incorporate \
    fmri=pkg:/print/cups/filter/foomatic-db-engine@0.20080903- \
depend type=incorporate \
    fmri=pkg:/print/filter/gutenprint@5.2.4- \
depend type=incorporate fmri=pkg:/runtime/erlang@12.2.5- \

The entire package also contains version-lock facets. In this case, the facets allow specified incorporations to be removed from the entire incorporation. However, this can result in a system that is not covered by support. Those packages should only be unlocked on advice from Oracle support personnel.
