pdf source; translate it by 'fig2dev -Lpdf cell-struct.fig cell-struct.pdf'
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)
*** Bug 512524 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
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.
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.
Now the problem went away.
Ok, closing then. Suspecting ghostscript as the culprit of the failure. Please reopen if you see this again.
Today I saw failed builds from the SPARC Koji server that were caused by this issue.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 13 development cycle.
Changing version to '13'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Tried it again with TeX Live 2010 on F13 and it is now fixed. (will be fixed as soon as TL2010 is in Fedora)
