Description R P Herrold 2000-09-15 01:44:50 EDT
... the .spec file for this package produces the file dependency, instead
of the package which provides /etc/init.d/functions {don;t have a 7.0
system in reach to reverse it out. -- sorry}
[root@couch src]# rpm -Uvh
error: failed dependencies:
        /etc/init.d   is needed by xinetd-
[root@couch src]#
Comment 1 R P Herrold 2000-09-20 20:40:40 EDT
More information -- The observed behaviour is because of a missing dependency:

add to the .spec file in the SRPM:

Requires: initscripts >= 5.46-1

Will remove the problem, for initscripts at that level will provice 'functions'
in the expected location of /etc/init.d/

with that added, and a patch bump, it will close the bug.
