Description Thorsten Leemhuis 2007-05-03 13:41:36 EDT
Description of problem:
I yum updated two systems to rawhide weeks ago (I know, this is not supported,
but I doubt its different when updating with anaconda). I noticed that
gutenprint-foomatic was not installed on both of them. gutenprint itself was, as
it obsoletes gimp-print. But gutenprint is not much worth without
gutenprint-foomatic, as you can't configure gutenprint drivers without
gutenprint-foomatic afaics . Maybe a better placed obsoletes (maybe just move
the current one itto the gutenprint-foomatic package, as that will track in the
main gutenprint package automatically afterwards) or an additional one (not
sure) might get gutenprint-foomatic tracked in automatically, too.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gutenprint-5.0.0.99.1-2.fc7

Would be nice to see this fixed before releasing F7, as the current behavior
otherwise might confuse users a lot.

Yes, it should be moved to gutenprint-foomatic.  Good catch!
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2007-05-04 10:15:57 EDT
Build blocked by GCC bug #239003.

Well, after filing this bug I wasn't sure anymore if gutenprint-foomatic
actually is needed to use gutenprint, but according to your reaction it seems so.

While investigating I noticed two other things in in comp.xml (see
http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com/viewcvs/comps/comps-f7.xml.in?root=extras&view=marku
): 

- gutenprint is listed in the group "graphics" ("This group includes packages to
help you manipulate and scan images."). Sounds wrong to me -- "Printing" might
be the better place afaics. 

- I can't see gutenprint-foomatic in comps.xml at all. Shouldn't that be added
to the printing group, too? Likely marked as 'type="default"', so it gets
installed when people choose the printing group?

Well, gutenprint-foomatic isn't *needed* for printing: you can install
gutenprint-cups instead and use the native CUPS drivers.  But we used to ship
the equivalent of guteprint-foomatic in with the foomatic package back when
gimp-print was used.

I've filed bug #239033 to track those comps issues.
