Description Jan Houstek 2004-09-08 23:31:57 UTC
Description of problem:
archexec script introduced in version 4.3.0-68.EL is not in
XFree86-devel package, but in XFree86. gccmakedep and xft-config
(which are symlinks to archexec) doesn't work without X-server installed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install XFree86-devel and not XFree86
2. try to run /usr/X11R6/bin/gccmakedep

Actual Results:  bash: /usr/X11R6/bin/gccmakedep: No such file or

Expected Results:  Empty output and 0 exit code.

Additional info:

A simple workaround is to put archexec from XFree86 package in
/usr/X11R6/bin by hand.

archexec ultimately should be in "coreutils" IMHO, but there was
no time to persue that.  It's of general purpose, so I stuck it in
the X server subpackage as most people likely have that installed,
however I didn't add the necessary dependancy.  I guess for the
current purpose of the specific issue it was designed to resolve
however, it makes the most sense to move it to XFree86-devel and

Thanks for the report.

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2004-09-09 22:11:54 UTC
Update:  Fixed in xorg-x11 6.8.0-1 rpm internally for rawhide.
Still need to update the XFree86 rpms for RHEL3.

Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2004-09-15 06:56:17 UTC
Updated for RHEL3, and will be in next update that gets released
for RHEL3, very soon.  Closing as "ERRATA".
