Description jens.koerber 2001-03-11 19:27:31 UTC
... maybe include the remaining XFree86-ISO8859-2 fonts in
XFree86 (/usr/share/fonts/ISO8859-2/misc) and obsolete
the XFree86-ISO8859-2 package ...

I removed all the 3.3.x stuff from my system. The symlink

ln -snf ../../../../etc/X11/XF86Config

is now dead ... I'm using

ln -snf ../../../../etc/X11/XF86Config-4

(btw: thanks for the Xpilot optimizations ... together with the
ISDN-kernel changes in 2.2.19preX (unsupported ;-) this is the 
first ever playable version via ISDN ... :-)

Comment 1 jens.koerber 2001-03-11 19:48:05 UTC
I rechecked the ISO8859-2 fonts and it looks like the stuff in
/usr/share/fonts/ISO8859-2/misc is already included in 
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc  ...

So a  "Obsolete: XFree86-ISO8859-2" somewhere in XFree86.spec 
should be safe ..

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2001-03-18 00:05:25 UTC
Putting an Obsoletes line anywhere would not work because the fonts
are split between three subpackages now.  Not sure how to handle this one..

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2001-06-01 06:06:15 UTC
The symlink isn't dead unless someone has deleted the file, or at
least it shouldn't be.  There is one included in the RPM.

The font thing is not easily resolveable IMHO without increasing complexity
significantly for no real major gain, and at the risk of hosing RHN.
