Cannot build pango from the SRPM in Fedora repository
Last modified: 2009-07-14 11:03:26 EDT
Description of problem:
I have downloaded the pango SRPM from one of the Fedora
and tried to build a pango RPM. I have used the same SPEC file provided with
SRPM but added a simple patch from
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=441654. However the build failed with
the following errors:
../xml/pango-version.xml:162: parser error : Entity 'nbsp' not defined
../xml/pango-version.xml:196: parser error : Entity 'nbsp' not defined
../xml/pango-version.xml:199: parser error : Entity 'nbsp' not defined
../xml/pango-version.xml:202: parser error : Entity 'nbsp' not defined
../xml/pango-version.xml:205: parser error : Entity 'nbsp' not defined

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the SRPM from
2. install the SRPM using rpm -ivh pango-1.20.4-1.fc9.src.rpm
3. added the patch http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=441654
4. Build the rpm using rpmbuild -ba SPECS/pango.spec
The rpmbuild failed with error
create pango and pango-devel rpms
I have successfully build the pango-1.20.1 in Fedora 9.
Something broken with your XML tools setup.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
