Description of problem:
When I try to run yum update, I get the following error:
Error: Missing Dependency: libttf.so.2 is needed by package MagicPoint
and the update fails. I thought that the libttf library disappeared when the
freetype package was upgraded from 2.1.x to 2.2.x. So I'm kind of surprised
that this wasn't caught earlier. Did the libttf library move to some other
package. (See Bugzilla #218872.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Install MagicPoint 1.11b-2.fc5
3.Upgrade to FC6
4.run yum update MagicPoint
The error message given in the summary.
That the MagicPoint package would get updated.
I just checked using "yum whatprovides libttf.so.2", and there is nothing in
core, updates, extras, or extras-devel that contains a file of that name.
I just found the problem. I still had a entry excluding RPMs of the form
freetype* in my yum.conf. Removing this fixed the problem. I' apologize for
No problem thanks for finding this yourself before I had the time to waste time
on this :)
