Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 104562
gtkspell should require aspell, and -devel aspell-devel
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:57:37 EDT
Description of problem:
I suggest gtkspell.spec should require aspell as a dependency
and gtkspell-devel should require aspell-devel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

gtkspell has a DT_NEEDED on libaspell, I prefer those for package flexability if
the aspell ABI changes and we need to do a compat package.
I ran into this problem when trying to build gaim. Rebuilding the RPM failed
when it couldn't find the stuff in aspell-devel. gaim has a BuildReq on
gtkspell-devel, and suggested the problem was with the gtkspell-devel package's
It's my understanding the DT_NEEDED will not fix this problem. Is this problem
not worth fixing? If that's the case, what's the point of BuildReq?
the comment was in regard to a Requires: aspell for the main gtkspell package.
The Requires: aspell-devel requirement has been added to gtkspell-devel.
