Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 201383
BuildRequires or BuildPreReq lack glibc-devel
Last modified: 2013-03-06 00:59:47 EST
Description of problem:
IÂ´ve been trying to prepare the kernel from Source RPM (version 2.6.9-34.0.2.EL)
and received this error: plase see http://pastebin.ca/114284. Then I installed
the group "Development Tools", but it didnÂ´t solve. Note that I was using
"exclude=*.i386 *.i686 *.i586 *.athlon" in yum.conf. Then I removed those
excludes and tried to prepare again, same error. Then I did "yum install
glibc-devel" (it has chosen an i386 version and installed it). Then the rpmbuild
command ran correctly. I think glibc-devel could be inside the spec file as a
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I assume always.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install a new minimum server on a x86_64
2.download and install the kernel source RPM version 2.6.9-34.0.2.EL
3.run 'rpmbuild -bp kernel-2.6.spec' using a non-root user
Please see http://pastebin.ca/114284
Compile without errors.
I think glibc-devel could be inside the spec file as a requirement.
hmmm it seems like gcc needs glibc-devel to be installed. So it seems that this
dependency should be there. Are you sure you didn't get an error when installing
the kernel source?
