Description John Thacker 2006-02-22 12:21:48 EST
Description of problem:
xfig needs to have an external pdf viewer.  Currently, xfig-3.2.4-redhat.patch
patches the source so that xpdf (rather than acroread) is the default pdf
viewer.  This should probably be changed to evince in the patch and the Requires
switched to evince as well.  This is especially relevant considering discussion
about removing xpdf and openmotif from Core.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ivh xfig-3.2.4-17.2.i386.rpm (without xpdf installed)
Actual results:
error: Failed dependencies:
    xpdf is needed by xfig-3.2.4-17.2.i386

Expected results:
xfig should not depend on xpdf

Since this was set to DEFERRED, and FC5 has now been released, reopening bug for
the development process for FC6.
Comment 2 Ngo Than 2006-05-05 17:07:56 EDT
