dnf builddep should be more verbose
Last modified: 2015-11-13 08:50:38 EST
We have switched the Fedora builders over to Fedora 23 and dnf and in this I noticed that 'dnf builddep' isn't as verbose as maintainers might like it to be.
DEBUG util.py:393: Error: package octave-devel-6:4.0.0-6.fc24.x86_64 requires octave = 6:4.0.0-6.fc24, but none of the providers can be installed
This was true, but only because it can't install octave, which is because it can't install java-headless which is because it can't install javapackages-tools which is because it can't install python3-javapackages.
Ie, the real dep issue was with python3-javapackages.
Would it be possible to report the resolver chain that led to not being able to install that 'top level' package? That would be of great help to maintainers when trying to see what package(s) need attention.
