Description of problem:
TeXmacs contains a copy of fig2ps instead of depending on it (fig2ps-1.3.3-2 is in Extras). This causes the 2 packages to conflict.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fig2ps.
2. Try to install TeXmacs.
Actual Results: Committing changes...
Preparing packages for installation...
file /usr/bin/fig2ps from install of TeXmacs-22.214.171.124-1.fc4 conflicts with file from package fig2ps-1.3.3-2
file /usr/share/man/man1/fig2ps.1.gz from install of TeXmacs-126.96.36.199-1.fc4 conflicts with file from package fig2ps-1.3.3-2
Expected Results: TeXmacs should install.
Please have the TeXmacs specfile rm the 2 offending files and "Requires: fig2ps" instead.
Although both programs probably do the same same, they are not the same.
Is it save to use the other fig2ps?
I didn't look at the source code yet. I guess we have to figure this out.
I just noticed that fig2ps (TeXmacs) used some progs that I didn't include
in the Requires, e.g. dvips and fig2dev. I presume the fig2ps has a
Requires for transfig which includes fig2dev!?
I think removing fig2ps from TeXmacs is the way to go.
Removed fig2ps from the package and added requires fig2ps.
