Description Aaron Kurtz 2006-03-09 02:16:42 EST
Description of problem:
Thanks for packaging Banshee. The FE rpm, however, doesn't install
ipod-sharp automatically. It'd be nice if it did.

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

How reproducible:
Install banshee with "yum install banshee" or pirut.
Actual results:
Banshee and other requirements are installed, but not ipod-sharp,
which in turn doesn't install libipoddevice. Ipod fails to work
with Banshee.

Expected results:
"yum install banshee" includes ipod-sharp and libipoddevice in
the requirements, making Banshee ipod-enabled

What platform is this on?  rpmbuild is supposed to auto generate that
dependency, and it should not be an explicit Requires:
Comment 2 Aaron Kurtz 2006-03-09 12:17:32 EST
Just standard x86, on a new installation of FC5t3.
Comment 3 Christopher Aillon 2006-03-09 12:58:09 EST
% rpm -q --requires banshee | grep ipod
mono(ipod-sharp) =
% rpm -q --whatprovides "mono(ipod-sharp)"

So the problem seems to be that banshee doesn't use the installed copy of
ipod-sharp.  I remember talking to Aaron Bockover about this last week, and the
packaging ramifications slipped my mind at the time.

This is intentional because ipod-sharp isn't yet stable.  So, it copies over the
dlls and uses those.  Thus, it needs ipod-sharp but since we built it into the
banshee package, it satisfies its own dependency on ipod-sharp, and ipod-sharp
and libipoddevice don't get installed...

Building a new package with an explicit Requires: libipoddevice.

Thanks for the report.
