Description of problem:
Package contains a pkgconfig template file, which lists other pkgconfig files as
requirements. When these files are included in other RPM packages, the RPM
package "Requires" must be complete. Else pkgconfig fails, prints an error
message and returns an error code for standard queries like "pkg-config --exists
foo-1.0", "pkg-config --cflags foo-1.0" or "pkg-config --list-all".
missing dependencies due to pkgconfig files:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 113070 [details]
patch against CVS
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Some are still missing, but it is beyond my time to track issues
for so many months. Here's the Requires which ought to be mapped
to direct RPM Requires in epiphany-devel:
$ grep Req epiphany-2.16.pc
Requires: gtk+-2.0, libxml-2.0, libgnomeui-2.0, bonobo-activation-2.0,
ORBit-2.0, libglade-2.0, gnome-vfs-2.0, gnome-vfs-module-2.0, gconf-2.0
However, in FC6 the depchain pulls in all needed -devel packages via
other -devel packages' dependencies, hence I close this ticket.
