Description Andrew Bauer 2019-10-06 16:01:38 UTC
Description of problem:
tracker-devel is an optional build dependency of the netatalk package, which I maintain. However, netatalk fails to Koji build due to missing tracker-devel.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install tracker-devel

Actual results:
dnf fails to find tracker-devel

Expected results:
dnf successfully installs tracker-devel

Additional info:
According to the spec file, the -devel subpackage should exist.

jwb, do you know what's going on here that tracker-devel isn't in the repos that epel uses?

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 is not a self-hosting distribution and was intentionally scoped in the content provided.  tracker-devel was not included in the shipping content.

Gents - so where do we go from here? tracker-devel exists for el7, so shouldn't there be some way to get it into el8 as well?

Comment 13 Kalev Lember 2020-06-23 13:21:04 UTC
OK, this should be fixed in RHEL 8.3.0 GA where tracker-devel is added to the CRB listing.
