Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2005-01-26 02:56:19 UTC
The patch doesn't look correct.

The x86_64 ghostscript packages provides libgs.so.7, but x86_64 RPM
knowledge is needed here:

$ rpm -qp ghostscript-7.07-33.x86_64.rpm --provides | grep libgs

$ rpm -qlp ghostscript-7.07-33.x86_64.rpm | grep libgs

Comment 3 John Ellson 2005-01-26 03:37:58 UTC
I accept that it may not be the *right* patch, but it works for me
on x86_64 with only the x86_64 version of ghostscript-7.07-37
installed (no i386).

Apparently "Requires: libgs.so.7" doesn't find the version in
/usr/lib64/, but "Requires: ghostscript >= 7.07-15.3" does.

Comment 4 Michael Schwendt 2005-01-26 09:58:40 UTC
Sure, "Requires: ghostscript >= 7.07-15.3" _assumes_ that package
ghostscript >= 7.07-15.3 provides the needed libgs.so.7. We can safely
assume that, as long as we know the library soname is included in the
right place. It's still only a workaround for what the original
dependency tried to achieve.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2005-01-26 13:20:08 UTC
OK, goofy.  

I have no problem changing the dependancy.

Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2005-01-26 15:31:10 UTC
* Wed Jan 26 2005 Rex Dieter <rexdieter[AT]users.sf.net> 0:4.6-9
- back to Req: ghostscript >= 7.07-15.3 for x86_64 (#146223)

Comment 8 Thorsten Leemhuis 2005-03-06 14:37:34 UTC
Just noticed; this seems to be fixed in cvs. Can anybody close?

Comment 9 Rex Dieter 2005-03-06 20:22:32 UTC
I was waiting for updated/fixed binaries before closing the bug.  (And
I believe that part is my fault for not actually requesting a new
build yet)
