Description Karanbir Singh 2005-07-04 13:31:38 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050523 CentOS/1.7.8-1.4.1.centos4

Description of problem:
darcs contains BuildRequires:  latex2html
which dosent exist on fc3 / fe3

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild --rebuild darcs-1.0.3-2.fc3.src.rpm

Actual Results:  error: Failed build dependencies:
        latex2html is needed by darcs-1.0.3-2.el4.kb.i386

Additional info:

lates2html seems to be a FC4 package ( its there at : http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/4/i386/os/Fedora/RPMS/ ) - but does not exist on FC3 ( http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/3/i386/os/Fedora/RPMS/ ).

How did it get build for the FC3 Extras ?
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2005-07-04 23:19:35 EDT
No idea ;-)   but thanks for catching this. :)

Actually it seems the buildrequires for generating docs are not needed
in practice AFAICT since the source tarball comes with 
pre-generated html files anyway.

I removed the unneeded doc buildrequires in cvs now,
so it should get fixed the next time darcs gets built.
Comment 2 Karanbir Singh 2005-07-05 08:27:42 EDT
are there any build /root logs available ? be interesting to see.

I find it surprising that the buildsystem is ignoring a missing BuildRequires
and going ahead with the build anyway.
Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2005-07-06 04:32:59 EDT
I believe that the yum-modified version of "mach" used in the current build
system ignores "yum install" failures and effectively ignores BuildRequires,
which fail to install [for various reasons].
