Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 11507
transfig needs to be updated
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 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").
Created attachment 251 [details]
new spec file
This was updated as an errata item some weeks ago -
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
And why isn't the updated transfig package in RawHide?
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.
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-bugfixes.html mentions anything
about transfig, krb5 or mutt, for example?
