Description Eduardo Minguez 2014-12-05 11:54:29 UTC
Description of problem:
Installing previous version of xorg-x11-server-Xorg installed some basic drivers as dependency, making the system usable, but in xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.15.0-22.el6, dependencies of xorg-x11-drv-{vesa,evdev,void} are missing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Install xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.15.0-22.el6

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.15.0-22.el6
2. Check dependencies
3. Missing basic drivers

Actual results:
No basic drivers installed as in RHEL6.5

Expected results:
Basic xorg-x11-drivers installed

Additional info:
In previous xorg-x11-server specs, there was:

%ifarch %{ix86} x86_64
Requires: xorg-x11-drv-vesa
Requires: xorg-x11-drv-fbdev
Requires: xorg-x11-drv-void xorg-x11-drv-evdev >= 2.1.0-3

that looks missing in current spec
