User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)
Description of problem:
The new version of XFree86 package has faulty dependence, pam-devel
is required although not needed. This was an issue some time ago, too.
Versions for RHL 8.0 should be the same case.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -Fvh XFree86-*23.i386.rpm
Actual Results: error: failed dependencies:
pam-devel is needed by XFree86-4.2.1-13.73.23
Expected Results: no error message
I'll check a fix for this into CVS so any future updates will have
it should we release future erattum for RHL 7.3 or 8.0.
Red Hat Linux 7.x and 8.0 are discontinued and no longer supported
since Dec 31, 2003, so there will not be any future updates of
XFree86 for these products, however upgrading to an existing
supported release should also solve this problem.
