#10602 new defect

Xorg fonts cannot be used as packages because of unneccessary font-util dependency

Reported by: rossb@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


These xorg related packages: encodings, font-alias, font-misc-misc, font-bh-75dpi, font-cursor-misc, font-daewoo-misc, font-dec-misc, font-ibm-type1, font-isas-misc, font-jis-misc, font-micro-misc, font-misc-cyrillic, font-xfree86-type1 are problematic as modules. 

When the above packages are attempted to install, they fail because of missing font-util dependency.

font-util is not built as a package, it is a host tool and does not exist as a package, preventing module dependency satisfaction.


In Makefiles, for all above enumerated packages, do this:

-  DEPENDS:= +xserver +font-util @DISPLAY_SUPPORT
+  PKG_BUILD_DEPENDS:=font-util
