Comment 6 Anssi Johansson 2015-05-09 13:34:31 UTC
t1utils is included in RHEL 7. It should not be included in EPEL 7.

Comment 7 Robert Scheck 2015-05-09 13:58:49 UTC
Searching using https://rhn.redhat.com/rhn/channels/software/Search.do does
find nothing when searching for t1utils, but when looking in CentOS, there's

Comment 8 Anssi Johansson 2015-05-09 15:08:41 UTC
I'm told t1utils is in the -optional channel of RHEL7. The search web form may or may not function properly for RHEL7 packages at this time.

As far as I can see, Red Hat should release this update as an RHEL7 update, and t1utils should be retired from EPEL7.

Comment 9 Akemi Yagi 2015-05-09 15:18:47 UTC
I can confirm that t1utils is available from the optional repo:

$ sudo yum --disablerepo=epel list t1utils
Loaded plugins: langpacks, product-id, subscription-manager
Available Packages
t1utils.x86_64               1.37-6.el7                rhel-7-server-optional-rpms

If I do not disable epel:

$ sudo yum list t1utils
Loaded plugins: langpacks, product-id, subscription-manager
Available Packages
t1utils.x86_64                           1.37-7.el7                           epel

Comment 10 Akemi Yagi 2015-05-09 15:22:49 UTC
Just in case it is not obvious, my comment is about EL7. In EL6, t1utils is not in RHEL.

Comment 11 Robert Scheck 2015-05-10 20:08:06 UTC
Is the t1utils package also available as ppc64 at RHEL 7? All I can find is
