Description Michal Jaegermann 2001-06-03 22:57:25 UTC
Description of Problem: Spec files for XFree86-4.0.3 (various versions) have in requirements initscripts at least 5.20. Why so high? I recompiled these sources a number of times for a system with initscripts-5.00 and I do not see any ill-effects.
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2001-06-04 08:43:58 UTC
I do not recall why the dependancy is on 5.20, nor do I recall if I set it to that, or if I inherited XFree86 with it like that. The changelogs do not seem to contain any comments as to why it was changed. My guess is that the new xfs initscript is i18nized, and that it requires updated initscripts for this to work? I dunno for sure, but I assume that whoever set it to require initscripts 5.20 or greater had good reason even if they did not document it. As such, I'm inclined to leave it as is rather than remove it just to find out why. Bill, do you know what reason we're requiring 5.20 or greater?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-06-11 15:04:17 UTC
It was for the old i18n that we ended up not using. Feel free to axe it.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2001-06-12 02:43:32 UTC
Ok, will do in 4.1.0, but I'm not going to touch 4.0.3 as I don't want to create any surprises in a stable series. Thanks. Fixed in 4.1.0-0.6.0
