Description Jonathan Kamens 2000-05-18 17:29:24 UTC
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").

This was updated as an errata item some weeks ago -

Comment 3 Jonathan Kamens 2000-05-19 00:19:59 UTC
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?

Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-05-19 14:52:59 UTC
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 10:40:59 UTC
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?
