Description Need Real Name 2004-07-30 03:29:27 UTC
gnumeric is a package that has been part of Red Hat Linux up through Red Hat Linux 9. It is now missing. Many of our users have come to depend on this package and have a lot of data in gnumeric data files. The spreadsheet option in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 appears to be "oocalc", part of the OpenOffice suite. Oocalc cannot import gnumeric spreadsheet files, rendering existing data not only useless but unrecoverable. Given the long history of gnumeric with respect to Red Hat Linux, we expect to see it as a part of the distribution. At this point we have many upset users who cannot get at important data. We are being forced to bring back a system running (unsupported) Red Hat Linux 9.

Not a technical flaw, gnumeric was not shipped with RHEL3.
Comment 3 Jeremy Dreese 2004-09-08 14:45:32 UTC
I would like to second this comment. Our users too rely on gnumeric and now that we've switched to RHEL, they still need gnumeric (particularly for backword compatibility). I suppose this is really a request for enhancement, not a "bug".

We currently support OpenOffice.org as our spreadsheet solution, and aren't planning to add support for gnumeric to RHEL 3 or future RHEL releases at this time.

How come gnumeric is listed as being in RHEL 4 (according to the release notes)? It doesn't seem to appear in the actual distribution.
