Description Irina Gulina 2017-11-06 13:41:13 UTC
Description of problem:
fonts/everything profile installation fails on Fedora-Modular-27-20171106.n.0 because of missing dependencies. 

Actual results:
fonts/everything => 

Problem 1: conflicting requests  - nothing provides mono(mscorlib) = needed by sharpfont-4.0.1-4.module_bedbd3b3.x86_64

Problem 2: conflicting requests  - nothing provides perl(GD) needed by unifont-9.0.06-4.module_bedbd3b3.x86_64

Problem 3: conflicting requests  - nothing provides python3-pyxdg needed by fonts-tweak-tool-0.3.2-15.module_bedbd3b3.x86_64

Problem 4: conflicting requests  - nothing provides texlive-base needed by tex-fonts-hebrew-0.1-26.module_bedbd3b3.noarch

Problem 5: conflicting requests  - nothing provides gnome-shell needed by gnome-shell-extension-ibus-font-0.20170217-2.module_bedbd3b3.noarch

Problem 6: conflicting requests  - nothing provides needed by alfont-2.0.9-12.module_bedbd3b3.x86_64

Problem 7: package fonttools-3.14.0-1.module_bedbd3b3.noarch requires python3-fonttools, but none of the providers can be installed  - conflicting requests  - nothing provides python3-numpy needed by python3-fonttools-3.14.0-1.module_bedbd3b3.noarch

Problem 8: package urw-base35-fonts-20170801-2.module_bedbd3b3.noarch obsoletes urw-fonts < 3:2.4-25 provided by urw-fonts-3:2.4-24.module_bedbd3b3.noarch  - conflicting requests

Comment 1 Stephen Gallagher 2017-11-06 16:19:58 UTC
Please explain what you are actually doing that results in these conflicts. We can't reproduce and fix it if we don't know what's going wrong.

I suspect the problem is that we have two modules providing conflicting versions of the same font, though. CCing Karsten.

Comment 2 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2017-11-06 16:21:42 UTC
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 27-server-beta by Fedora user sgallagh using the blocker tracking app because:

 We should really make sure that fonts aren't conflicting with one another in the release.

Comment 3 Karsten Hopp 2017-11-06 16:32:30 UTC
The problem is that I've included all the fonts in the 'everything' profile without checking if they have additional requirements.
The fix for this is to remove those fonts from the profile (after cross checking with langtable.xml so that we don't accidentally remove fonts required by anaconda)
I've already done that and it looks like all of them are save to remove from the profile.

Comment 4 Stephen Gallagher 2017-11-06 18:18:01 UTC
There's an updated fonts module that makes the above changes. It'll be in the next compose, assuming this gets granted a Freeze Exception.

Comment 5 Geoffrey Marr 2017-11-06 19:48:10 UTC
Discussed during the 2017-11-06 blocker review meeting: [1]

The decision to classify this bug as an AcceptedFreezeException was made as this bug cannot be fixed with just an update and thus warrants a freeze exception. This will ensure an available profile for the fonts module can actually be installed without errors.

@Stephen Gallagher, sorry, I wasn't explicit in the bug summary. Those errors appeared on 

>> dnf module install fonts/everything

> The error changed, please see the attachment in the previous comment.

Irina, there was a compose bug that resulted in most of the fonts disappearing from the composed RPM repository. This has been fixed, so please retest with the latest nightly build.
