Description Frank Ch. Eigler 2016-01-15 11:02:59 EST
Building a pcp client application out-of-tree naturally requires
the pcp-libs-devel package to provide headers/libraries.  However,
as of git pcp, this subrpm requires:


(rhel 7.2 pcp is even worse dependency-wise, with the pcp-compat stuff,
but that is going away.)

The former of these dependencies is excessive, and brings in many
binaries, services, etc., that are irrelevant to the task of building
a pmapi program.  If there -is- something in the pcp subrpm that
is required, it should be moved into -libs or -libs-devel.

Fixed upstream in commit: dc89e74e859f8b4c0a0ea0323614b716a569e3a6
RPM Packaging - new pcp-devel package with tools/docs

Leave pcp-libs-devel for just the libs and header files,
push devel pmdas and tools into pcp-devel and adjust the deps
Comment 4 Miloš Prchlík 2016-08-20 12:26:17 EDT
Verified for build pcp-3.11.3-3.el7.
