Description Reuben Thomas 2001-06-01 08:07:09 EDT
Description of Problem:

in rpm -q --requires ImageMagick).

How Reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ImageMagick but not ghostscript
2. Try to convert a PostScript file

Actual Results:

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-06-01 08:29:38 EDT
Since RPM doesn't have a "RequiresForFullFunctionalityButWorksWithout:" tag, 
and ImageMagick can be quite useful without PostScript support (e.g. for 
converting gifs to pngs), I prefer having it the way it is.
