Description Prarit Bhargava 2006-04-13 18:56:32 EDT
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
Actual results:

Build fails with warning:

error: Failed build dependencies:
        texinfo-tex is needed by R-2.2.1-5.ia64

Expected results:

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.
Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2006-04-14 09:46:41 EDT
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.
