Description Florian Weimer 2019-11-27 08:27:34 UTC
The backports for bug 1654901 include this patch:

| From: Igor Gnatenko <i.gnatenko.brain@gmail.com>
| Date: Wed, 21 Nov 2018 14:59:19 +0100
| Subject: [PATCH 1/3] build: make haveRichDep aware of other fields allowed to
|  have them
| Recommends/Suggests/Supplements/Enhances can also have rich deps,
| so we need to extend the check. Or remove it.

This causes glibc-langpack-* packages to have rpmlib(RichDependencies) <= 4.12.0-1 dependencies, which in turn causes mock to to bail out during the bootstrap chroot setup:

Start(bootstrap): cleaning dnf metadata
Finish(bootstrap): cleaning dnf metadata
INFO: enabled HW Info plugin
Mock Version: 1.4.21
INFO: Mock Version: 1.4.21
Start(bootstrap): yum install
Failed to set locale, defaulting to C
ERROR You need to update rpm to handle:
rpmlib(RichDependencies) <= 4.12.0-1 is needed by glibc-langpack-zu-2.28-97.el8.x86_64

Comment 2 Miroslav Suchý 2019-11-27 08:55:12 UTC
You should be able to use Mock using

However, IMO the use of RichDeps in glibc (or anything in @buildsys group) would be nice to postpone till death of RHEL7.

Comment 3 Panu Matilainen 2019-11-27 08:56:16 UTC
Folks, calm down. That patch was mistakenly included in the backport. I've reverted it and building now.

Comment 4 Panu Matilainen 2019-11-27 09:09:11 UTC
The problematic patch reverted, and thus issue fixed, in rpm-4.14.2-35.el8.

Thanks Florian for reporting!
