Broken build - missing libgs.so.7
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:42 EST
Description of problem:
The build of gsview is broken as it requires libgs.so.7 but libgs.so.8 is only
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gsview.
It will not start.
It would start.
GSview 4.7 2005-03-25
play_sound: not implemented
Failed to load libgs.so.7: libgs.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such
file or directory
Can't load Ghostscript DLL
And BTW I forgot I hope it is clear "gsview" should "Requires: libgs.so.8".
Maybe better: "Requires: ghostscript >= 8.0.0" (if it is true).
Hrm. gsview was *supposed* to be removed from Extras months ago (licensing
issues). ??? I'll have to find out how/why it snuck back in.
Oh, OK, both gv(1) and evince(1) are also usable. I will forget about gsview(1).
Sorry, it is just left installed, yum(8) did not complain / delete it.
I was just still used to it.
