Comment 4 Lubos Kocman 2017-11-21 16:31:08 UTC
Hi This one is tricky claimed to be NO_OP for RCM however it's not really required by fwupdate

pjones what's the deal here? Is the build already built? We might need to add it to comps since I don't see a current requirement fwupdate -> libsmbios

fwupdate is in @base, I don't necessarily want to add more packages into @base if necessary. This should be hadled by requires.


Comment 5 Karl Hastings 2017-11-21 20:00:29 UTC

fwupdate and fwupd should both require libsmbios.  At least they do in Fedora 27.


Any thoughts on why the libsmbios requires is missing from fwupd?

Comment 6 Karl Hastings 2018-02-13 19:45:20 UTC

Some additional background.

Richard cannot submit the build that requires libsmbios because libsmbios-devel isn't in the buildroot.  libsmbios-devel isn't in the buildroot because Peter can't push it because the "Product Listing" is missing from Errata Tool.

I'm not sure what's missing to enable the product listing, but it looks like it's safe to say that this is most definitely *not* a no-op.

Comment 7 Yaakov Selkowitz 2018-02-14 04:10:36 UTC
To clarify, presence in buildroot and in product listings are two unrelated things.  I have pushed libsmbios to buildroot, so fwupd (not to be confused with fwupdate, which does not show such a BR atm) can now be built therewith.  Once that is done, the runtime dependency should pull it in; whatever else is needed thereafter is up to RCM.
