Provide a liberation-fonts virtual package
Last modified: 2015-10-03 17:53:43 EDT
Description of problem: As an ISV, we would like to package a generic Google Chrome RPM that requires liberation fonts. However, "Requires: liberation-fonts" does not work with Fedora because its liberation-fonts are split into multiple packages, and there is no meta-package to install them all.
OTOH, OpenSUSE has just 1 package that provides liberation-fonts. http://rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/opensuse/13.2/noarch/liberation-fonts-1.07.3-2.1.5.noarch.html
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): N/A
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a RPM that requires "liberation-fonts"
2. Try to install the RPM
Installation succeeds and the system has liberation fonts installed.
liberation-fonts-1.07.4-6.fc23 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 23.
Fix done, Let me know if any further issue.
Thank you for the quick fix. Will the fix be backported to Fedora 21 and 22?
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 23 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing liberation-fonts-1.07.4-6.fc23'

liberation-fonts-1.07.4-6.fc22 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 22.
liberation-fonts-1.07.4-6.fc21 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 21.
I did an install of F22, updated, enabled the updates-testing repo, and updated again. I got the -6 package as a part of that.
I then uninstalled all the liberation-fonts packages, and tried to do: yum install liberation-fonts, but yum says no package liberation-fonts available. I see liberation-fonts-1.07.4-6.fc22.noarch.rpm in the repo, so I'm not sure what's wrong there.
I saw issue with an upgrade path. i.e. F23 update was not stable but F22 was, so they disabled it for some time. (https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/liberation-fonts-1.07.4-6.fc22)
F23 update is stable now, lets wait for one day and see how it goes.
liberation-fonts-1.07.4-6.fc22 has been pushed to the Fedora 22 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Any chance of pushing the update out for Fedora 21 as well?
Woohoo! If you don't see any more comments from me, assume I'm a happy customer. :)
