Same thing on RHL8.0 with 4.2.1-20, and is the -xf86cfg subpackage just gone?
Indeed. Looks like a bad Requires line.
I'll fix it internally in case there ends up being further erratum in the
future, but it isn't itself worthy of another XFree86 update for one small
This is now fixed in 4.2.1-21, which will be released as erratum for Red Hat
Linux 8.0 very soon due to another more serious issue reported in bug #98082
which requires an immediate fix due to the massive package sizes.
Since the src.rpm is now shared between Red Hat Linux 7.3 and 8.0, I pull off
8.0 when doing erratum, so any future 7.3 updates that are warranted will
automatically get this fix as well, so I'm closing this issue as resolved
in ERRATA for Red Hat Linux 8.0 for now even though it's reported against
