Where did you get that SRPM ? inkscape has not been released on EL-5 yet! :-)

Ah sorry. Will look into it, I'm barely getting started porting to EL-4 and EL-5.
Comment 5 Denis Leroy 2007-12-12 21:26:54 EST
Can you try the current EL-5 branch svn ? That's working for me on RHEL 5.1 x86_64.
Comment 6 Denis Leroy 2007-12-13 08:58:51 EST
Should be in epel-testing. Please reopen if you're still having problems.
Comment 7 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2007-12-18 08:23:46 EST
Confirmed working. Thanks for the quick resolution. I wonder what I did wrong
when building.
