Description of problem:
The fetchmail of FC1 will complain about relocation error when used
with krb5-libs from RH9 update.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RH9 with the upgrade krb5-libs-1.2.7-14
2.Install fetchmail-6.2.0-7 from FC1 with whatever RPM says it requires.
3.Run: fetchmail -V
Actual Results: uebn> fetchmail -V
fetchmail: relocation error: fetchmail: undefined symbol:
Expected Results: uebn>> fetchmail -V
This is fetchmail release 6.2.0+IMAP-GSS+NTLM+SSL+INET6+NLS
I suppose fetchmail should have a "Requires: krb5-libs >= 1.3.1-6".
(Or at least "krb5-libs > 1.2.7-14".)
I'm sorry about the late reply.
Basically, "don't do that". rpm automatic dependencies only notice so much,
and determining the exact package version (which may depend on the
distribution you use) is not worth the effort.
If you need to import packages from different distributions, rebuild the
source RPM. This should eliminate all similar issues.

Of course. But I thought that when I now had stumbled on this one, I could
report it so you could note it in the package. To avoid that others were hit by
THAT particular issue.
It wouldn't have to be the exact minimum version. It could be a conservative
approximation. Like the version included in the same release.
It will never be perfect. But why not do it as good as possible, when the
effort is minimal?
