Description Kevin Kofler 2005-11-04 14:41:01 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90; H010818)

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):
TeXmacs-1.0.5.11-1.fc4

How reproducible:
Always

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-1.0.5.11-1.fc4 conflicts with file from package fig2ps-1.3.3-2
	file /usr/share/man/man1/fig2ps.1.gz from install of TeXmacs-1.0.5.11-1.fc4 conflicts with file from package fig2ps-1.3.3-2

Expected Results:  TeXmacs should install.

Additional info:

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?
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2005-11-04 16:34:18 EST
I didn't look at the source code yet. I guess we have to figure this out.
Comment 3 Gérard Milmeister 2005-11-04 17:38:24 EST
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.
Comment 4 Gérard Milmeister 2005-11-15 16:34:18 EST
Removed fig2ps from the package and added requires fig2ps.
