Description Orion Poplawski 2020-05-16 01:34:20 UTC
Description of problem:

texlive-kpathsea owns the following symbolic links:
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 7 May 14 15:14 /usr/bin/mktexfmt -> fmtutil
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 8 May 14 15:14 /usr/bin/texhash -> mktexlsr

but no longer owns or requires their targets - they have moved to texlive-texlive-scripts.

Since texlive-kpathsea previously required texlive-tetex for fmtutil, it seems reasonable that it should now require texlive-texlive-scripts.  I'll make that change shortly unless you say otherwise.

Comment 1 Orion Poplawski 2020-05-16 03:58:17 UTC
I'm afraid I'm back to a build problem that I cannot reproduce locally in mock.

+ latex dummy.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.21 (TeX Live 2020) (preloaded format=latex)
 restricted \write18 enabled.
kpathsea: Running mktexfmt latex.fmt
mktexfmt: No such file or directory
I can't find the format file `latex.fmt'!

It seemed like all that was needed was to add a temporary BR on texlive-texlive-scripts to workaround the missing dep, and that fixed it for me locally.  Not sure why it is still failing in koji.

This package has changed maintainer in the Fedora.
Reassigning to the new maintainer of this component.

Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2020-06-18 17:36:56 UTC
Is this still a valid bug?

Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2020-06-19 01:45:54 UTC
No, it's resolved:

$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/mktexlsr
$ rpm -q --requires texlive-kpathsea | grep texlive-scripts
