Description Eirik 2009-06-30 12:22:57 EDT
poppler/poppler-utils replaced xpdf in el5, however pdftoppm isn't being distributed with poppler-utils:

el4 xpdf:
/usr/bin/pdftoppm <--- 

el5 poppler-utils:
NOKEY, key ID 37017186
Comment 2 Ingvar Hagelund 2011-01-14 06:16:28 EST
Rebuilding poppler-utils with pdftoppm requires --disable-splash-output, which is non-compatible with fontconfig, if I have understood this correctly. I tried to do this, but ended up with lots of font related errors from pdftoppm. 

So with the version of poppler in rhel5, this is not doable without a bit heavier patching.

The easiest workaround is probably to grab the epel xpdf package, and readd pdftoppm there, like this, see attached patch.

attaching a patch for xpdf in a poppler bug seems a bit strange, so I just put it here: http://users.linpro.no/ingvar/xpdf.spec.pdftoppm.patch

Best regards,
