Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 30159
pdflib (libpdf 3.03)
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
I would be interested in finding pdflib 3.03 on RedHat 7.x (on the main
disk or as a powertool). I need this library to build up Grace, with is a
nice scientific plotting tool.
I found a .src.rpm of pdflib 3.03 but unfortunately it does not produce the
c++, perl, java and python binding subpackages.

This package includes C-bindings. It does not include Perl, Python,
C++ or Java bindings; if you need those, you'll need to install PDFlib
from the source tar-ball.
Note that this package is not official software from PDFLib GmbH. It's
not covered by support from the company behind PDFLib.
Is it possible to get this package in the future release of RedHat? I know
that 7.1 will be out in few weeks from now and that it is too late to get
pdflib in it, but on rawhide for instance. That would be perfect for me...

Sorry, I know I chose the wrong package but i did not find the way to
specify my request as a general question about the content of the RedHat
The Alladin Public license doesn't give us the right to distribute it.
OK. This is bad... So, I presume I will have to build the rpm by myself...
Thanks in any cases for your answer.
