Description Petr Holasek 2012-04-15 10:01:55 EDT
Hi,

for reasons of saving space on liveCD, libnuma was splitted out of numactl
package to numactl-libs. Would you please update dependencies of your package
in this manner?

thank you!

Currently libvirt only has the following related to numactl:

%if %{with_numactl}
# For QEMU/LXC numa info
BuildRequires: numactl-devel
%endif

so it never directly requires numactl at install/runtime anyway. I assume it's just getting the libs it requires due to the implied dependency created by linking to libnuma.so

To verify, on my f17 system which is more or less identical to rawhide from libvirt's point of view) I just removed the numactl package, and it didn't complain about this breaking any dependency for libvirt (or any other package). On F16, on the other hand (where numactl-libs hasn't been split off from numactl), when I attempt to remove the numactl package, I'm told that this would also necessarily remove libvirt.

I'm closing this. Please re-open if I've missed some detail.
