Description Andreas Thienemann 2005-02-19 21:19:18 EST
There seems to be a bug in the Dependency defintion for the
gnome-applets-2.8.0-5.1 package.

Even though the apmd_archs is defined in the specfile

# apmd is built on %{ix86} and ppc
%define apmd_archs %{ix86} ppc

and the Build-Dependency on apmd is defined in the spec

%ifarch ${apmd_archs}
BuildRequires:  apmd >= %{apmd_version}

rebuilding without apmd does result in the following message:

Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.20091
+ umask 022
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ test -e /usr/lib/libapm.a
+ echo 'You must have apmd installed'
You must have apmd installed
+ exit 1
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.20091 (%prep)

This should actually not happen as rpm should be able to notice that no apmd
package is available and complain right after the dependency check.

Substituting ${apmd_archs} with %{apmd_archs} in the %ifarch statement seems to
fix this problem.

Nicely spotted, many thanks.

This was already fixed in the FC-4 development branch, but I've put
the fix into the RHEL-4 and FC-3 branches too now. However, I didn't
release an update with just this fix, but it will be in the next
update that gets releasted.
