graphviz is broken
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
dotty provided by graphviz-2.8-3.fc5 does not work since lefty is missing from
the package. I get the following output when running dotty--
which: no lefty in
dotty: cannot locate the lefty program
make sure that your path includes
the directory containing dotty and lefty
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.prompt> dotty /usr/share/graphviz/graphs/directed/alf.dot
dotty errors out.
dotty should display the graph.
This package has been broken for 5 months, please fix this ASAP! Is this
package orphaned? There is also a duplicate at bug #197236.

Is the fix really not as simple as it appears?
It was pretty simple, actually. Alex came into #fedora-extras this morning
looking for help on this issue, and I rolled an update, resolving this and
#184171. I inadvertantly created another bug (if only one) in the process, but
it's not a blocker, and if this package goes orphan next week, I'll likely take
over and do another round of cleanups.
