Description Bryan Stillwell 2004-05-27 14:19:32 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040413 Debian/1.6-5

Description of problem:
The script '/usr/lib/rpm/check-files' in the rpm-build package uses
the diff command, but diff isn't an install requirement for rpm-build.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install a very base system leaving out diff
2.Try to rebuild an RPM

Actual Results:  The rpm was made, but this warning was displayed:
/usr/lib/rpm/check-files: line 1: diff: command not found

Expected Results:  A list of unpackaged files should have been
displayed if there were any.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Bryan Stillwell 2004-05-27 14:23:54 EDT
The required packaged should be diffutils, not diff.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2004-05-29 08:57:25 EDT
diff is not a hard dependency, as check-files may or may not
be configured.

There is no easy answer for dependencies that are needed depending
on how a system is configured, nor will there be soon, as
it's a hard problem. Hence, WONTFIX.
