No it doesn't it requires /usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSans.ttf, the others are
part of the same package, the requires is done with a file requires on one of
the 4 files in case they ever move around (fonts have been shuffled quite a few
time in Fedora's lifetime).

Comment 2 Florian La Roche 2007-11-18 04:44:44 EST
Hello Hans,

Seems the font names have changed. The current Fedora-devel rpm e.g.
has the following names:
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root           540012 Oct 28 16:22
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root           493596 Oct 28 16:22
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root           496296 Oct 28 16:22

Seems the symlinks in your package have additional "-" in them
or differ otherwise.

Ah, what fun, I verified this on F-8 before closing, but appearantly someone
thought it was a good idea to rename some files. See thats why I have the file
requires and not a requires on the package name, but I only expected all 4 of
them to be moved around not some to get renamed. Guess its time to at explicit
file requires for all 4 so next time I get a broken dep report from the push

Thanks for the due villigiance! I'll fix this within the next couple of days.

Comment 4 Hans de Goede 2007-11-20 16:33:59 EST
Fixed in 0.9.1-6 which should be in the next rawhide push.
Comment 5 Florian La Roche 2007-12-09 17:52:22 EST
Seems dejavu-fonts have changed back to the old names, sorry for shouting
too early to adjust this rpm:

Current dejavu rpm:
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root           546248 Dec  4 05:55
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root           496836 Nov 11 05:55
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root           499536 Nov 24 05:55
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root           588152 Dec  4 05:55

Comment 6 Hans de Goede 2007-12-09 18:25:42 EST
Yeah, I already noticed as I added explicit requires on the new names. However a
new swig has broken my build fixing this. koji is now building a second try,
which works arounds the new swig "features"

And I've finally managed to fix things so that it builds again, closing (again).
