R package build failure due to missing rpms
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:30 EST
Description of problem:
R package fails to build/install due to missing texinfo-tex package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: 1005
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild --rebuild source.rpm or rpmbuild -bb spec.file
Build fails with warning:
error: Failed build dependencies:
texinfo-tex is needed by R-2.2.1-5.ia64
Build should complete.
Additional info: I'm unsure if this is a bug or not -- IMO, all packages
required to build a Fedora Extra should be in Extras ... but that might not
be canon with fedoraproject.
Not just Fedora Extras, but also Fedora Core... which is where texinfo-tex resides.
The devel/ branch points to rawhide for its builds, if you don't use rawhide,
you won't have texinfo-tex in Core, but if you do, it's there.
