Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 118428
Dependancies on XFree86 should not be present
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:38 EST
The bitmap-fonts package contains hard coded dependancies on
XFree86 packages, which need to be fixed before xorg-x11 can
be enabled in the development tree.
The following is found twice in the spec file, and I believe
it should just be removed.
I'm not sure what that dependancy was there for, however if
something is used during build time, it should be added as an
X11 implementation independant buildrequires, either by
or if necessary I can make a virtual provides in X11 packaging
to handle the situation.
The bug is still here in the shipping SRPMs of Fedora Core 2.
The build process actually requires bdftopcf, provided by
"xorg-x11-font-utils". I guess a virtual provides in that package for
"bdftopcf" is better than hardcoding "/usr/X11R6/bin/bdftopcf" here.
I just went with BuildRequires: xorg-x11-font-utils, kept it simple,
if thaat package gets rename in a year or two, this package can
be updated again.
xorg-x11-font-utils has had the following virtual provide for quite
some time, to avoid future package dependancy problems when things
I strongly recommend changing to using BuildRequires: font-utils
as this virtual provide will be kept for the future. I'll leave
that up to you though.
