Description of problem:
Transaction Check Error: file /usr/share/man/man3/line.3.gz from install of allegro-devel-4.2.0-7 conflicts with file from package ncarg-4.4.1-2.fc5
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ncarg
2. Install allegro-devel
I believe this needs fixing on ncarg side as allegro-devel is installed much
more frequently than the FORTRAN77 Graphics Library.
What I don't understand is what happened to the concept of namespace, and not
polluting it. Why do people create C functions called line()?
So... as far as I can tell, both are broken, and I'm not sure why package
popularity is relevant at all.
AFAICS not a single allegro function or symbol has a namespace prefix like it
Both are broken. I've renamed the man3 pages in ncarg to ncarg_<name>.
Jindrich, I suggest allegro do the same or similar. I'm closing the bug though
since they can both be installed now.
