Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 61625
Missing data files in netpbm package
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:10:21 EST
Description of Problem:
The netpbm package does not contain palmgray.map and palmcolor8.map files.
This means you cannot effectively use pnmtopalm, which needs its input to be
filtered through "ppmquant -map palm*.map" (where * is either gray or
color8). All these files are available in the netpbm-9.14 tarball at
SourceForge, so I think it is definitely a packaging error.
What is worse, the current beta release of Red Hat Linux (skipjack) apparently
also does not include these files neither in netpbm nor netpbm-progs package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
probably all, but definitely netpbm-9.14-2 from RH7.2 and netpbm-9.24-1 from
rpm -qpl netpbm* | grep palm.\*map
Have you checked wether the latest versions of netpbm on sourceforge contain
these maps? We don't usually repack the tarballs, so if they got lost there it's
definitely either an upstream problem or perhaps some legal thing (copyrighted
maps, who knows?).
I'll see what i can do about it (either include old versions or maybe get it
back into the tarball upstream).

Yes, latest versions of netpbm on SourceForge contain these files (I've verified
netpbm-9.14.tar.gz and netpbm-9.24.tar.gz).
Ok, i'm including these files now. They are just missing in the files section.
Fixed in latest rawhide release.
Read ya, Phil
