Description Michael Schwendt 2005-03-29 16:39:32 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323
Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
Without splitting off a -devel package, it's not possible to fix this.

Package gnome-utils 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

Missing dependencies due to pkgconfig files:

Requires: glib2-devel
Requires: libgnome-devel
Requires: libgnomeui-devel
Requires: gtk2-devel

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Comment 1 Warren Togami 2005-03-30 05:06:04 EST
Can't this be simplified to just one or two?  Because gtk2-devel pulls in
glib2-devel already?
Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2005-03-30 05:17:40 EST
Yes, elimination of redundancy is possible.
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2005-10-13 00:28:08 EDT
Will be fixed in the next build
