Description Matthew Saltzman 2012-07-01 13:23:28 EDT
Description of problem:
R-core has a dependency on texlive-latex and texlive-dvips packages.  Jindrich Novy's texlive-2012 repo has just undergone a major update changing package names from texlive-* to tex-*, so R won't install when using texlive-2012.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install texlive from http://jnovy.fedorapeople.org/texlive/2012/packages.fc17/
2. yum install R R-core
Actual results:
R-core fails to install because of dependencies

Expected results:
R-core installs and works

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
Comment 1 Jindrich Novy 2012-07-01 14:12:23 EDT
One should use virtual provides to TeX packages like tex(latex):


Then everything should be OK.
Comment 2 hannes 2012-07-01 14:23:31 EDT
The other possibility would be that the tex-latex packages provide texlive-latex, or?
Comment 3 Susi Lehtola 2012-07-02 02:38:45 EDT
Yes, but that would be a workaround. Since there are many LaTeX compilers around, packages that just need a compiler should require it in generic form as instructed in the packaging tricks.
Comment 4 Jindrich Novy 2012-07-02 05:02:35 EDT
R also uses broken dependencies for dvips (texlive-dvips) and mixes tetex-latex and texlive-latex obsolete dependencies in the spec. I fixed them in rawhide for now.
Comment 5 Joel 2012-07-02 13:02:01 EDT
Why only rawhide?
Comment 6 Tom "spot" Callaway 2012-07-02 13:03:42 EDT
I'm fixing everything else along with the 2.15.1 update right now.

Shouldn't R-core package be included in the update?
Comment 12 Tom "spot" Callaway 2012-07-02 17:08:57 EDT
R-core is a subpackage of R, it is included in the update. Fedora updates are described/defined by their "SRPM" names.
