Description Steve Grubb 2004-07-28 20:19:31 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.4.2)

Description of problem:
At line 22 of the specfile: 

%if %{WITH_PAM}
Requires: pam

Should be:

%if %{WITH_PAM}
BuildRequires: pam-devel

Otherwise there won't be a clue that pam-devel is needed for
compiling. rpm will pick up the Requires: pam as it builds the package
even without it being explicitly said.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e --nodeps pam-devel
2. rpmbuild -bb vixie-cron.spec

Actual Results:  compile failed

Expected Results:  message saying where the rpm was saved.

Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2004-07-29 09:13:20 EDT
Actually, it was 'Requires: pam-devel'
until I got a letter complaining that 
devel packages should not be required
on production systems.
Obviously, it should have been:
' Requires: pam
  BuildRequires: pam-devel
and shall be so henceforth 
( vixie-cron-4.1-5 + )
