Re: [HEADSUP] X11 dependency changes

Hash: SHA256

Package maintainers,

Modular X11 has been pushed into the distro.  I need all maintainers of
X11-related packages to update their installation and test their
packages to make sure they still work correctly.

The following is a list of all packages that should be rebuilt (or
possibly updated) ASAP to account for the modular X11 transition:

GraphicsMagick: depends on obsolete libdpstk1; fonts have moved
nedit: needs patch for ARGB visuals [1]
openbox: in /usr/X11R6
plotutils: depends on obsolete libXaw8
suite3270: x3270 in /usr/X11R6; depends on obsolete libXaw8
tcm: in /usr/X11R6
tetex: tetex-x11 in /usr/X11R6
WindowMaker: in /usr/X11R6
x2x: in /usr/X11R6
Xaw3d: in /usr/X11R6
xmon: in /usr/X11R6; depends on obsolete libXaw8


When you do rebuild/update X11 packages, please make sure you update
your setup.hint's appropriately.

If you have any issues with the new X11, please follow up on the
cygwin-xfree list.
