Description Tim Waugh 2004-09-08 09:57:34 UTC
Description of problem:
Just completed an installation on x86_64 from the rawhide tree
containing rpmdb-fedora-2.91-0.20040907.x86_64.rpm.  I installed in
text mode.

The greeter screen would not display, and I traced it to pango failing
to read /etc/pango/pango.modules because it was absent.  This was in

# grep -nE '(xorg-x11-libs|pango)' install.log
262:Installing pango-1.5.2-2.i386.
263:/usr/bin/pango-querymodules-32: error while loading shared

or directory

281:Installing xorg-x11-libs-
660:Installing pango-devel-1.5.2-2.x86_64.

But since pango requires xorg-x11-libs, I'm not sure why they got
installed in the wrong order.

Removing and reinstalling pango (both arches) post-install fixed the

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Can't see how this would be caused by anything in the Pango 
packaging. Jonathan was helping QA with the same problem a
few days ago, Cc'ing in case he found anything out.

Jeff -- I haven't started poking this in earnest yet (tracking down a
couple of other things), but do you have any ideas off hand?

The order looks right on i386, but definitely seems a little bit off
for x86_64...

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2004-09-08 15:29:07 UTC
Get me access to an x86_64 and I'll dig out the problem.

Fix for rpm -Va on multilib same time ...
