Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 862379
gnome-desktop should require pixman
Last modified: 2012-10-03 16:23:11 EDT
Description of problem:
gnome-desktop should require pixman otherwise TPS Shared Libs test failed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. no pixman installed
2. rpm -qf /usr/lib/libgnome-desktop-2.so | grep 'not found'
libpixman-1.so.0 => not found
pixman should be installed as dependency
not a regression
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
I assume step 2 is actually
2. ldd /usr/lib/libgnome-desktop-2.so |grep 'not found'
but anyway gnome-desktop doesn't use pixman directly, so if it's linking to it, it's linking to it indirectly. Does
rpm -q --requires cairo |grep pixman

Uh sorry I paste wrong line.

rpm -q --requires cairo | grep pixman
So you think it is transitional dependency (or how is it called)? In that case it could be closed.
well, there's some mystery here. why wasn't pixman pulled in when you installed cairo ?
Well it is not a mistery since it is a stable system and anybody can unistall pixman for testing or so. We can close I believe.
i don't know how they could without --nodeps, but you filed it, you get to say if it gets closed :-)
