GDL package needs dependency on plplot added
Last modified: 2008-10-01 02:42:20 EDT
Description of problem:
Package needs plplot, but this is not in the dependency list
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install gdl, run a plot command and it generates an error. Install plplot and it is OK.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ sudo yum install gdl
2. $ gdl
3. GDL> plot, 
4. GDL> exit
5. $ sudo yum install plplot
6. GDL> plot, 
7. GDL> exit
plot command fails with the error
*** PLPLOT ERROR, ABORTING OPERATION ***
plInitDispatchTable: Could not open drivers directory, aborting operation
Requested device xwin not available
Enter device number or keyword:
"sudo yum install gdl" should install plplot (not just plplot-libs)
Hmm, probably should try to split up the plplot package to handle this better, but I'm not up for it at the moment. gdl-0.9-0.rc1.2 will be pushed shortly with this added. Thanks for the report.
