Description John Guthrie 2007-01-28 06:09:13 UTC
Description of problem:
When I try to run yum update, I get the following error:

Error: Missing Dependency: is needed by package MagicPoint

and the update fails.  I thought that the libttf library disappeared when the
freetype package was upgraded from 2.1.x to 2.2.x.  So I'm kind of surprised
that this wasn't caught earlier.  Did the libttf library move to some other
package.  (See Bugzilla #218872.)

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC5
2.Install MagicPoint 1.11b-2.fc5
3.Upgrade to FC6 yum update MagicPoint
Actual results:
The error message given in the summary.

Expected results:
That the MagicPoint package would get updated.

I just checked using "yum whatprovides", and there is nothing in
core, updates, extras, or extras-devel that contains a file of that name.

Comment 2 John Guthrie 2007-01-31 07:20:57 UTC
I just found the problem.  I still had a entry excluding RPMs of the form
freetype* in my yum.conf.  Removing this fixed the problem.  I' apologize for
the confusion.

No problem thanks for finding this yourself before I had the time to waste time
on this :)
