Description Seth Vidal 2004-12-21 02:30:22 EST
Description of problem:
Epoch:0 was removed from ghex spec file.
ghex was rebuilt.
ghex-devel requires %{epoch} in the spec file - but since epoch wasn't there it
requires LITERALLY %{epoch}, which always fails on lookup.

Needs to be fixed with 0 in place of %{epoch}
Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2004-12-21 07:29:20 EST
Fixed in CVS.

I'm to blame. In packages I had testbuilt and prepared in CVS, I
didn't want to touch epochs because I wanted to leave that decision to
the packager owners. ghex is one package where I picked up Matthias' 
euphoria for deleting epochs, and promptly ran into the trap.

Seth, could you ran a "rpm -qpR * | grep epoch" or something like that
in full pre-extras tree? Hopefully there are no other cases found.
Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2004-12-21 08:26:35 EST
 I ran it last night after I saw ghex-devel. There are no others.

Thanks. I'll build this and close.
