Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 117820
Trigger script invokes xftcache
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:04:04 EDT
Description of problem:
When updating XFree86 in Fedora Core 1 to XFree86-4.3.0-55, I was
given an error about missing xftcache which I traced to a trigger
script in ttfonts.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RedHat 7.3, including ttfonts.
2. Upgrade to RedHat 9 (this may be unnecessary, but I did so)
3. Upgrade to Fedora Core 1
4. Apply updates up to XFree86-4.3.0-55.
/var/tmp/rpm-4343: line 1: xftcache: command not found
No error message.
I cannot tell if this is missing a dependency (xftcache should really
be there) or not checking that xftcache is there before invoking it.
Maybe it's a case of "old packages never die, they just ..."
