Subject: [gentoo-user] Imagemagick and Graphicsmagick blocking each other
Date: Sat, 10 Dec 2011 23:32:19
Message-Id: 20111210233107.GE5966@eisen.lan
1 Hello,
3 a number of packages depend on imagemagick, such as Inkscape, Frescobaldi and
4 some LaTeX related stuff. I wanted to take a look at Octave, but this
5 positively wants graphicsmagick, which is a fork of imagemagick as far as I can
6 tell and which conflicts with imagemagick.
8 Now some of the named packages can use graphicsmagick, it just comes last in
9 the ebuild’s order of dependencies, but some others can’t. D’ya think this is
10 worthy of a bug report, since graphicsmagick even has an imagemagick useflag?
11 Perhaps this could be converted into a virtual to make this easier on a global
12 scale.
14 Or would it be too much dependent upon the individual package? I don’t know
15 anything about graphicsmagick really, or its kind of compatibility
16 implementation.
18 Cheers
