Description Saurabh Bathe 2006-02-16 14:37:06 UTC
Description of problem: The buildrequires for lam in spec file seems to be
incorrect. The build should fail for RHEL3/4 but it does not.
The package lam has a epoch 2 which is the reason the buildrequires test fails.

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

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download blacs*.src.rpm on a RHEL3/4 machine
2. try to do a rpmbuild
Actual results:
rpmbuild does not fail even though the version of lam on these systems is less
than required
# rpm -q lam

Expected results:
rpmbuild should fail with:
[root@localhost SPECS]# rpmbuild -bp blacs.spec
error: Failed build dependencies:
        lam >= 2:7.1.1-5 is needed by blacs-1.1-18.i386

Additional info:

Comment 1 Saurabh Bathe 2006-02-16 14:43:47 UTC
forgot to mention, the buildrequires should include epoch
lam >= 2:7.1.1-5

Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2006-04-07 18:32:05 UTC
Resolved in blacs 1.1-20.
