Description Philip Gwyn 2005-02-17 01:44:51 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
This patch adds %define use_X to the spec file.  This define is then
used to conditionnaly turn functionnaly that needs X11 on or off.

Deactivating X11 is useful for servers.

This means that gsx, gv, and the xes and other x11 output devices are
not available.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Default FC3 install
2. rpm -e xorg-x11-libs

Actual Results:  Step 2 fails because ghostscript requires xorg-x11-libs

Expected Results:  Being able to install a server w/o X11 libs

Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 20:47:23 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2006-07-11 12:45:22 UTC
Think the patch will need re-working for ESP GS now.

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2014-12-18 17:15:44 UTC
Looks like we can just package %{_libdir}/%{name}/%{gs_dot_ver}/ separately now and have it do the right thing at runtime.
