When building the package on RHEL-6 (essentially F-12 with fontforge-20090622-2.1.el6.x86_64) I got this:

+ exit 0
Provádění(%build): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.kPypyn

+ unset DISPLAY
+ fontforge -script - /home/matej/build/SOURCES/Inconsolata.sfd

Comment 1 Kevin Fenzi 2010-05-06 20:26:34 UTC
Where did you get this old package? I suggest you file this bug with whoever that is... RHEL6? 

The problem is that newer fontforge versions don't assume this is a fontforge script to build, so you need to add '-lang=ff' to the fontforge line. 

See any of the levien-inconsolata-fonts packages in Fedora, which all build fine. 

I don't know that there is anything for me to do here... you want to reassign this? Or should I just close it?

Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2010-05-06 20:44:15 UTC
Well, I've got it in the last successful build at http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=5755. Is there anything more recent anywhere?

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2010-05-06 20:51:37 UTC
The package was renamed... it's: 


now. Per the new font guidelines. 


Comment 4 Matěj Cepl 2010-05-06 22:04:20 UTC
Yes, of course, I am silly ... the name may be unfortunately complicated, but levien-inconsolata-fonts rebuilds just fine.

Closing as PEBKAC aka NOTABUG.
