Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 486132
No dependence of tk-devel on libXft-devel
Last modified: 2009-02-19 03:08:43 EST
Description of problem:
When using TK_LIBS from /usr/lib/tkConfig.sh, a linker error on -lXft occurs if package libXft-devel has not been installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
In the RPM spec file, there is a BuildRequires: dependence on libXft-devel, but the Requires: dependence for subpackage tk-devel is missing, although needed.
This is particularly annoying when recompiling packages simply depending on tk-devel.
AND A FIX IS QUITE URGENT REGARDING TO THE IMMINENT F11 MASS REBUILD !!!
This requirement was missing for a long time and no one noticed. Thank you for your report.
