Description Enrico Scholz 2004-07-02 10:50:56 UTC
Description of problem:

It would be nice when the

| Requires: kernel >= 2.4

dependency would be removed or be rewritten to

| Conflicts: kernel < 2.4

The first statement has its origin in ancient distributions (before
RH7.0??) and is fulfilled by nearly every modern installation.
Requirements on a recent installation are brought in by the
BuildRequires: also.

But such an explicit 'Requires:' introduces unneeded dependencies (the
kernel-package and its deptree) in chroot-environments like Linux

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


Comment 1 Barry K. Nathan 2004-07-14 09:54:07 UTC
Unfortunately, "Requires: kernel >= 2.4" and "Conflicts: kernel < 2.4"
say two different things. On a system with both 2.2 and 2.4 kernel
packages installed, the first requirement is satisfied but the second
is not...

Comment 2 Enrico Scholz 2004-07-14 09:58:52 UTC
Then, remove it completly. afaik, every supported RH distribution has
kernels above 2.4.0

Comment 3 Jason Vas Dias 2004-07-28 17:47:53 UTC
'Requires: kernel >= 2.4' 
will be removed from next bind version (bind-9.2.4rc6-4)
