Comment 3 Mattias Ellert 2009-07-25 05:56:36 EDT
Since this regression causes FTBFS for a number of packages, it prevents the F12 mass rebuild to complete → added to F12Alpha (since the rebuild is scheduled to be completed before the alpha release)
Comment 4 Mattias Ellert 2009-07-25 23:39:29 EDT
*** Bug 512524 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 5 Jesse Keating 2009-07-29 18:25:46 EDT
Since this doesn't block critical path of installing, logging in, and updating this is not a Alpha blocker.  If it prevents a rebuild of a package that does need to be fixed for a critical path issue, this bug can be made a blocker of that bug.
Comment 6 Mattias Ellert 2009-07-30 08:06:41 EDT
All my packages that failed to build due to this bug before (2009-07-25) worked today (2009-07-30). Maybe the F12 auto rebuild somehow fixed the problem.
Comment 7 Horst H. von Brand 2009-07-31 16:50:37 EDT

Now the problem went away.
Comment 8 Jindrich Novy 2009-08-01 04:35:44 EDT
Ok, closing then. Suspecting ghostscript as the culprit of the failure. Please reopen if you see this again.
Comment 9 Mattias Ellert 2009-08-13 09:56:42 EDT

Today I saw failed builds from the SPARC Koji server that were caused by this issue.

Comment 10 Bug Zapper 2010-03-15 08:40:53 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 13 development cycle.
Changing version to '13'.

Comment 11 Jindrich Novy 2010-04-22 13:25:20 EDT
Tried it again with TeX Live 2010 on F13 and it is now fixed. (will be fixed as soon as TL2010 is in Fedora)
