Description of problem:
Pango of RH 8.0 has in it's requirements libfreetype.so.6. But if used together
with freetype from RH 7.3, it fails to find the symbol FT_Set_Hint_Flags. There
ought to be a requirement on a newer freetype in the RPM.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.1.1-1
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install pango from RH 8.0 and freetype from RH 7.3:
uebn> rpm -q pango
uebn> rpm -q freetype
2.Log in an double-click the "Home" icon on the desktop.
Actual Results: A nautilus window comes up but is empty, disappears, the screen
flashes, a new empty window comes up, and so on until I log out.
In the log file there is a line:
nautilus: relocation error: /usr/lib/libpangoft2-1.0.so.0: undefined symbol:
A "Requires: freetype >= 2.1.2" in pango would solve this. I haven't researched
exactly which version of freetype between 2.0.9 and 2.1.2 introduced this symbol.
Fixed in 1.1.1-5
