Description Michael Redinger 2003-08-07 09:23:37 EDT
The Taroon gdm- 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.

Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2003-08-07 12:55:42 EDT
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.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-08-20 17:47:01 EDT
Buildrequires is there now
