Description Jonathan Kamens 2000-06-15 10:36:02 EDT
The spec file for glibc-2.1.90-17 contains:

Prereq: kernel-headers
Requires: kernel-headers >= 2.2.1

Isn't this redundant?  That is, doesn't the second line imply the first, in
which case the first should be removed?
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-06-15 12:03:15 EDT
I believe it's there in that you can't prereq a particular
*version* of a package.
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2000-08-25 12:16:38 EDT
No, the second line does not imply the first, Prereq means that kernel-headers
must be installed already at the time glibc-devel is being installed, as opposed
to Requires which means the requirement can be fulfilled within the same transaction set.
