Comment 1 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2005-05-19 15:29:22 EDT
The following Extras tetex packages are no longer needed

   * tetex-xcolor
   * tetex-pgf
   * tetex-beamer

The above three LaTex packages are now included in TeTeX 3.0.


# rpm -ql tetex-latex | grep xcolor
Comment 2 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2005-05-19 15:50:33 EDT
Now the strange part:

Last week I installed a clean FC4 test3 system (custom install).  I can yum
install tetex-{beamer,pgf,xcolor} without problems.

I tested this with  "tetex-latex-3.0-3" included in FC4 Test3. Then removed
every tetex package and installed "tetex-latex-3.0-4" from rawhide.  After this
tetex update I managed to yum install tetex-{beamer,pgf,xcolor} again without

This can happen if:
1) the file has the same MD5 digest in both rpms (tetex-latex and tetex-xcolor)
2) something is broken in yum/rpm

# rpm -V tetex-xcolor
(no output)
# rpm -V tetex-latex
........C   /usr/bin/latex
........C   /usr/bin/pdflatex
S.5....T.   /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/xcolor/svgnam.def
S.5....T.   /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/xcolor/xcolor.sty

Ouch! Different MD5 digests.

# rpm -q tetex tetex-latex tetex-xcolor yum rpm
Comment 3 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2005-05-19 16:00:02 EDT
Manually installing the tetex-xcolor with the rpm command generates the expected

# rpm -qa | grep ^tetex | xargs rpm -e
# rpm -ivh tetex-3.0-4.i386.rpm tetex-latex-3.0-4.i386.rpm
tetex-fonts-3.0-4.i386.rpm tetex-dvips-3.0-4.i386.rpm
#  rpm -ivh tetex-xcolor-2.02-3.fc4.noarch.rpm
       file /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/xcolor/svgnam.def from install of
tetex-xcolor-2.02-3.fc4 conflicts with file from package tetex-latex-3.0-4

Something is broken in yum (force installing by default? configuration?)

Comment 5 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2005-05-19 16:14:32 EDT
Michael or Warren,

I believe the FC4 tetex package should also be updated (the tetex package in FC3
didn't include xcolor, pgf, and beamer LateX packages).

Shouldn't it include something like:
Obsoletes: tetex-xcolor
Obsoletes: tetex-pgf
Obsoletes: tetex-beamer
Comment 6 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2005-05-20 23:11:59 EDT

Could you see comments #1 and #5?

I think this may me a FC4 blocker as it may break upgrades from FC3 with the
above Extras tetex packages installed (tetex-xcolor, tetex-pgf, and tetex-beamer).

Should I open a ticket against Fedora Core tetex package?
Comment 7 Michael Schwendt 2005-05-21 06:08:10 EDT
In general, file conflicts in existing packages don't prevent an upgrade from
happening. The files would be overwritten. But nothing in the upgrade process
would remove the Extras packages, which would be unclean.
Comment 8 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2005-06-21 16:01:50 EDT
Same problem but in the tetex core package
Comment 9 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2005-06-21 16:02:45 EDT

Packages have been removed at last.
