Description James Bannon 2005-12-13 14:35:11 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
There seem to be missing dependencies for texdoctk. Specifically, running it requires perl-Tk which is not installed as part of the core distribution. The fix is easy 'yum install tetex-doc perl-Tk' but I think this is technically a dependency problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the Fedora Core
2. try running texdoctk from the command line

Actual Results:  texdoctk complained that it needed perl-Tk to run.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Jindrich Novy 2005-12-16 15:51:52 UTC
Since perl-Tk isn't a part of core distribution, texdoctk will complain when
perl-Tk isn't installed and runs fine otherwise. If perl-Tk isn't present then I
added a message that instruct an user to install perl-Tk from Extras, so there's
no need to add the dependency explicitely and perl-Tk to Core as texdoctk isn't
an essential teTeX utility.
