Description Glen Foster 2001-06-19 11:41:46 EDT
Description of Problem: with the 7.1 product, you cannot build the
fileutils SRPM without having libtermcap-devel installed.   But, if "rpm
-ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/fileutils*spec" is executed, you do NOT get an
error from rpm about missing/unsatisfied build dependencies.  If you
install the libtermcap-devel rpm, the fileutils SRPM builds without

How Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
   1. rpm -e libtermcap-devel
   2. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/SRPMS/fileutils*.src.rpm
   3. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/fileutils*spec
   4. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/RedHat/RPMS/libtermcap-devel*
   5. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/fileutils*spec

Actual Results:
first 3 steps result in a failure WITHOUT a build-requires error from rpm
next 2 steps build the SRPM without fail

Expected Results:  I would expect an rpm error message to be written to
stderr informing me the fileutils SRPM cannot be built without installing
the libtermcap-devel RPM.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-06-26 12:21:06 EDT
fileutils compiles if either libtermcap-devel or ncurses-devel is installed.
Since they don't provide anything common, and there's no "BuildRequires: 
libtermcap-devel || ncurses-devel" tag, I'm not 100% sure that this is the 
right thing to do.

I'm adding it, though - after all, if fileutils is compiled without 
libtermcap-devel, it'll be linked against ncurses, which is not what we're 
doing in the official packages.
