Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 101284
netatalk-1.5.5-8 depends on /usr/bin/rc?

When I try to upgrade to netatalk-1.5.5-8, I get:
/usr/bin/rc is needed by netatalk-1.5.5-8
If this file is supposed to be in the netatalk package, please add it. If it's
in some other RPM, please add a dependency on that RPM to the netatalk spec so
that I don't have to try to guess which RPM contains this file.
That's often an application that provides IR remote control support for doing
PVRs and such. When that's the app, it's provided by software RH doesn't ship, lirc
That seems kinda broken to me -- I can't think of why netatalk should need an
infrared remote control, so presumably this is a different one ;-)
That does mean netatalk will now conflict with lirc, and some people building
their own PVRs might actually want to use netatalk to share media with their
"rc" is the shell from the AT&T Plan9 operating system
If you have the source RPM from the Red Hat released version of netatalk
there is a patch you can merge into the RPM you're building which sidesteps
the need for rc.
Do you want netatalk 1.6.3 for RH9? I have it. I'm currently grinding out
1.6.3 for all supported releases.
Seems to be fixed in:
This should probably be marked as CLOSED/RAWHIDE
#rpm -q netatalk --requires
config(netatalk) = 2:1.5.5-9
pam >= 0.56
perl >= 1:5
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
Recommend CLOSED RAWHIDE.
