Description Michael A. Peters 2005-04-18 01:18:24 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-2 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
FontForge ( http://fontforge.sourceforge.net/ ) claims it needs the byte code interpreter enabled.

If when building the Fedora spec file with that support enabled, a virtual provides could be added - then a fontforge rpm could require the virtual provides, and thus yum/apt/whatever would not accidentally break fontforge during a routine update when a bugfix is pushed (as the dependency resolution should then prevent the custom built freetype from being replaced)

%if ! %{without_bytecode_interpreter}
Provides: %{name}-bytecode

(or something like that) should do it.

* Wed Mar 25 2009 Behdad Esfahbod <besfahbo@redhat.com> 2.3.9-2
- Add Provides: freetype-bytecode and freetype-subpixel if built
  with those options.
- Resolves: #155210
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2009-03-27 23:14:05 EDT
FYI, I also added these Provides to freetype-freeworld-2.3.9-2.fc11 in RPM Fusion.
