Description of problem:
RHEL6 doesn't seem to have a separate -devel subpackage:
$ sudo yum install valgrind-devel
No package valgrind-devel available.
Error: Nothing to do
... and yet, the header files such as valgrind/memcheck.h are not present in the
base package. This means programs that include valgrind client requests cannot be
compiled, which makes the RHEL6 package completely useless for my purposes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% I imagine
Steps to Reproduce:
1. see description
I pulled down the RHEL6 SRPM and verified that the specfile knows about building the devel subpackage, so actually this bug probably belongs to distribution. My memory is fuzzy about exactly who gets the blame though ...
It is available from the rhel-x86_64-server-optional-6 repository.
as mentioned most of -devel packages are placed in the optional channels. Optional channel is available to any RHEL subscriber, it's just not turned on by default.
I'm marking this issue as not a bug.
Thanks for understanding
