Description n fuhriman 2005-05-04 22:09:35 EDT
Description of problem: 
--what requires doesn't return complete information. it lists all rpms that 
require the specific package. it however doesn't list rpms that requires it's 
other files or provides. I've tried working around this by getting a full list 
of provides and requires but even this doesn't work as programs (raidtools) 
require packages that don't exist as provides (rpmlib) 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
every version has this probelm 
How reproducible: 
every time 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.make sure that vte and rhgb are installed  
2. rpm -q --whatrequires vte (rhgb is NOT returned) 
3. rpm -e vte (this throws an error saying rhgb requires vte) 
Actual results: 
--whatrequires doesn't return rhgb 
Expected results: 
--whatrequires should return rhgb 
Additional info: 
there are additional packages like this. rhgb and vte are just examples.

It's indirectly required as opposed to by name.  whatrequires looks at exact
name try:

rpm --provides -q vte | xargs rpm --whatrequires -q | grep -v no\ package | uniq
