Comment 1 Jan Kratochvil 2006-09-04 06:29:41 EDT
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).
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2006-09-04 09:52:43 EDT
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.
Comment 3 Jan Kratochvil 2006-09-04 09:58:17 EDT
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.
