Description Ralf Corsepius 2004-08-29 01:50:55 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
Missing package dependency: openmotif-devel does not require XFree86-devel

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Remove XFree-devel rsp. xorg-X11-devel from your system.
Then install openmotif-devel.

Installation will succeed, but openmotif-devel will be unusable.

Actual Results:  Installing openmotif-devel succeeds without having
XFree-devel rsp. x11-org-devel installed.

Expected Results:  Installing openmotif-devel to require XFree86-devel.
Note: XFree86 is a virtual package provided by xorg-x11-devel; 

Require: xorg-x11-devel would break backward compatibility of
rpm-specs to older RH/FC releases.

Additional info:

This missing package dependency requires all rpm specs of motif
applications to use
BuildRequires: XFree86-devel openmotif-devel

where otherwise
BuildRequires: openmotif-devel
would have been sufficient
Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2004-08-31 06:19:09 EDT
Fixed in rawhide in rpm openmotif-2.2.3-4.3 or newer.
