Description Jeff Pitman 2004-08-12 12:17:05 EDT
Description of problem:

Because of distutils the Makefile was moved from -devel into the main
package, but this will cause a Conflict if a python-devel=2.3.3 exists
when doing a straight install of python (yum install;apt-get install)
without installing python-devel.

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


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have distro with python, python-devel=2.3.3 installed.
2. yum install or apt-get install python.

Actual results:
Conflicts on the config/Makefile

Expected results:
Successful resolution

Additional info:

Probably something like this is need in the SPEC
# Makefile now in main pkg for distutils
Conflicts: python-devel < %{version}
