Description Michael Schwendt 2000-10-14 07:41:05 UTC
$ rpm -q perl
  perl-5.6.0-9

A package built with

  Requires: perl >= 5.00503

in the spec file fails to install:

  error: failed dependencies:
          perl >= 5.00503 is needed by perl-MailTools-1.13-3

The same package built with:

  Requires: perl >= 5.005

installs fine. This strange behaviour is new with RPM 4.0. Why is it like
that?

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-10-15 22:57:18 UTC
The behavior is new with the introduction of an epoch in the perl-5.6.0 package
and has
little to do with rpm-4.0.

The recommended solution is to write the dependency with an explicit epoch
	Requires:  perl >= 0:5.00503
