Description Philippe Rigault 2004-10-30 14:20:32 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: 
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.2; Linux) (KHTML, 
like Gecko) 
Description of problem: 
qt-devel requires XFree86-devel (incorrect) instead of xorg-x11-devel 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. rpm -qp --requires qt-devel-3.3.3-8.i386.rpm 
Actual Results:  XFree86-devel 
Expected Results:  xorg-x11-devel 
Additional info: 
This can confuse users and break scripts dealing with dependencies 
For example: 
# rpm -i qt-devel-3.3.3-8.i386.rpm 
error: Failed dependencies: 
        XFree86-devel is needed by qt-devel-3.3.3-8.i386.rpm 
There is no XFree86-devel rpm file -> user thinks he/she is stuck 
Creative/advanced user knows that xorg-x11-devel provides 
XFree86-devel--in other words, the solution is: 
# rpm -i xorg-x11-devel-6.8.1-12.i386.rpm 
# rpm -i qt-devel-3.3.3-8.i386.rpm 
but I doubt that most users would find this easily. 
Since qt-devel is required to build a kernel with 'make xconfig', a 
lot of people will run into this.
