Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 101825
gdm does not build
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:57 EST
The Taroon gdm-188.8.131.52-5.src.rpm package does not build correctly
on Taroon (everything install):
The error message says that /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libgsf-1.pc is needed.
So this is really two bugs:
- gdm needs libgsf-devel, but this is not included in Taroon (but in Severn)
- there should be a build prereq for libgsf-devel
See also bug #101819
Attaching the rebuild output.
Created attachment 93481 [details]
rpmbuild --rebuild gdm-184.108.40.206-5.src.rpm output
Taroon isn't intended to be self-hosting; the -devel packages are removed
to limit ABI support liability (keep customers/ISVs from using libraries
that we don't want to live with forever).
The buildrequires should be there though.
Buildrequires is there now
