Description David Howells 2004-08-11 10:52:13 EDT
Description of problem: 
The XFree86-libs rpm no longer contains the libXaw3d shared library. 
This prevents the emacs RPM from installing, since that library user 
by emacs. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
XFree86-libs-4.3.0-32.EL (RHEL3) has it. 
XFree86-libs-4.3.0-62.EL (RHEL3 U2) does not. 
Whilst bug this applies to ppc/ppc64, it also appears to apply to 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Install XFree86-libs from RHEL3-U2 
2. Try to install emacs from RHEL3 (there is no RHEL3-U2 version). 
Actual results: 
[root@powerv2 root]# rpm -i /tmp/emacs-21.3-4.ppc.rpm  
error: Failed dependencies: 
        libXaw3d.so.7 is needed by emacs-21.3-4 
Expected results: 
No error; it should just install.

libXaw3d is not part of XFree86 nor XOrg, and never was.  It is a
separate library that was provided in it's own package.

Reassigning to Xaw3d component.

Xaw3d is a separate package. Xaw3d-1.5-18 was included in RHEL3!

please make sure that you have to install Xaw3d package!
