Have you given the netpbm-9.14-2 package from 7.2 a try? I faintly remember
something about tiff changes in the changelog, could have been the rawhide
netpbm-9.20-2 package, too though...

Could you give those a try and report if they fix the problem?

9.14 from Red Hat 7.2 gives negated black and white.
9.20 from Rawhide prints out:
tifftopnm: writing PBM file
tifftopnm: invalid value for fillorder: 0
and does nothing. 

I exchanged a few e-mails with the author and he fixed it
in 9.23. So no, it does not work with RH7.2/Rawhide.

OK. I planed to update the netpbm package to the latest release anyway in the
next couple of days. I'll let you know via this bugzilla entry when it is ready
to be tested. If you could then verify once again that that version fixes your
bug then i'd greately appreciate it.


Read ya, Phil

PS: Package should be available sometime around Tuesday or Wednesday...

Sure, just let me know when it is availaible. 

Comment 5 Phil Knirsch 2002-03-12 09:27:36 EST
OK, took a little longer then expected. I'm currently building the new version,
should appear in rawhide over the next couple of days. I'll close the bug as
soon as it's ready.

Read ya, Phil
Comment 6 Phil Knirsch 2002-03-18 10:37:39 EST
OK, latest package is based on netpbm-9.24 (which should fix the bug). It should
be available soon via rawhide.

Read ya, Phil
