Specfile diff for 4.0.0-18 to 4.2.0-0

4.0.0-18-fc7 -> 4.2.0-0 diff

Doesn't directly build (ps_symbols.gpi) without setting

Built on FC6 (x86_64).

Comment 5 Gwyn Ciesla 2007-03-29 17:03:19 UTC
Is there a timetable to this being pushed to devel?  I'm curious if this will
fix this: and the bug
it blocks.

Comment 6 Marcin Garski 2007-03-30 19:52:33 UTC
4.2 should fix bug #135239

Comment 7 Terje Røsten 2007-05-08 09:17:51 UTC
Any news here?
Would be great to have 4.2 in Fedora 7.

Comment 8 Terje Røsten 2007-05-09 17:26:12 UTC
Added Tim's nice patches and then some:

- use major/minor variables
- set GNUPLOT_PS_DIR to build
- set installdir for gnuplot.cfg explicit
- add fontconfig to buildreq

RPMS for FC5 and FC6 on i386 and x86_64, SRPMS and spec file
available here:


Comment 9 Ivana Varekova 2007-05-21 13:06:12 UTC
