Description Jonathan Kamens 2000-05-18 13:29:24 EDT
Transfig needs to be updated to 3.2.3.  Also, in 3.2.3a you need to specify
extra include flags and libraries to get it to work properly with gdbm.
I'll attach a new spec file (you'll want to change "Release").

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-05-18 18:11:59 EDT
This was updated as an errata item some weeks ago -
http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/RHBA-2000017-02.html
Comment 3 Jonathan Kamens 2000-05-18 20:19:59 EDT
It would be easier to find things like this if the /pub/ls-lR.gz on
ftp.redhat.com had been updated more recently than April 19.  I *do* check for
things like this before I file bug reports, but when you don't keep the
information you're publishing up-to-date, it makes it more difficult to do that
correctly.

And why isn't the updated transfig package in RawHide?
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-05-19 10:52:59 EDT
Rawhide hasn't been updated for some time - I think the reason is it's to much
of a work in progress (read: severely broken).

I'll report the lack of ls -lR, but it's not the best way to find out about
updates - the web site is.
Comment 5 Jonathan Kamens 2000-05-21 06:40:59 EDT
You claim that "the web site" is the best way to find out about errata.  Can you
explain, then, why neither
http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/rh62-errata-security.html nor
http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/rh62-errata-bugfixes.html mentions anything
about transfig, krb5 or mutt, for example?
