Description Zenon Panoussis 2003-11-11 07:04:09 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
Python requires tix to build, but tix is not part of the rhel3 distro.
tix, in turn, requires itcl, which is not part of the distro either. 

Similar problems pop up elsewhere too. ghostscript buildreqs
gimp-print-devel. gimp-print in turn buildreqs ghostscript-devel. 

I'm filing this as one bug rather than opening a separate bug for
ghostscript because neither problem is really a programme bug; both
are QA issues with packaging and the distribution itself. 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild -bb python
1. rpmbuild -bb ghostscript
1. rpmbuild -bb gimp-print

Actual Results:  The packages won't build.

Expected Results:  It should be possible to build and install the
packages without having to resort to bootstrapping or importing from
other distributions.
Comment 1 Zenon Panoussis 2003-11-11 16:11:19 EST
And another one of these: syslinux buildreqs nasm, but nasm is not
part of the source distribution. If it's in the binary distro it
should be in the source too, and if it's not in the binary distro then
the problem doubles.
Comment 2 Zenon Panoussis 2003-11-11 16:34:43 EST
And yet another: perl-DBD-Pg requires postgresql-devel, but postgresql
is not in the distribution.

Thanks for the bug report(s). We are aware of these issues and working
on a solution for them.
Comment 4 Mihai Ibanescu 2004-10-07 01:01:14 EDT
We have pushed -devel packages starting with U2 (I believe).
