fyi, gsview is not hosted @ fedora, it is nonfree software. Perhaps you're seeing this? https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1737 (which was supposedly fixed, what version of gsview are you using? feel free to followup @ rpmfusion...)
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2011-08-26 14:53:21 UTC
and, another (arguably better) workaround than symlinking shlibs, is options -> advanced configure and manually set the "Ghostscript shared object" to the correct value for your system.
Comment 3 Bruce Heerssen 2011-08-26 14:57:15 UTC
Thank you for your response. That does indeed look like the same issue. I presume the fix will propagate to stable in due time. Also thanks for the tip.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2011-08-26 15:02:05 UTC
Just checked, I see the fixed gsview-4.9-3.fc15 the rpmfusion-nonfree repo already.
Comment 5 Bruce Heerssen 2011-08-26 15:07:17 UTC
Nice. That was fast. I'll wait for it to come along with my regular updates, since the workaround is viable. Thanks again, Rex.
