Description Matt Vanecek 2002-09-22 04:10:56 UTC

Description of problem:
The ghostscript 7.0.5 spec file requires gimp-print-devel to be installed, and
includes gimpprint in the ghostscript Makefile as a library to link to, but the
gimp-print spec file requires ghostscript-devel to be installed, which I cannot
because the spec file requires gimp-print...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
I run RH 7.2.  I want to install gimp-print 4.2.2, which requires ghostscript
7.0.5, for ijs stuff.  I downloaded ghostscript 7.0.5 from rawhide.  When I
tried to rebuild ghostscript, rpm told me that I needed gimp-print-devel
installed.  However, I cannot compile/install gimp-print-devel without having
ghostscript-devel, but to get ghostscript-devel, I need to have
gimp-print-devel, which requires ghostscript-devel....etc

The circular dependency makes it difficult to determine if gimp-print is really
and truly needed to compile ghostscript, or if it's OK to remove the dependency
from the ghostscript spec file.  Is it safe to remove the gimp-print stuff from
the ghostscript spec, so I can compile/install ghostscript, so that I can then
compile/install gimp-print?
