ruby-libs require ruby itself, but without ruby, ruby-libs and
ruby-devel are useless.

ruby itself.

Comment 1 Akira TAGOH 2004-10-08 06:05:31 EDT
No, as the package description says, ruby-devel is to developt the
extension library. and for that, ruby interpreter itself (which ruby
package contains) isn't required for that. and though eruby requires
ruby-libs, ruby interpreter itself isn't also required to get working
for eruby. that's why ruby-devel and ruby-libs didn't requires ruby.
so this is not a bug.
