pygtk2-devel doesn't require pkgconfig
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:52 EST
Description of problem:
It turns out pygtk2-devel in Fedora Core 5 doesn't require pkgconfig, which
results in failed builds for Extras packages depending on pygtk2-devel. In devel
and FC6, builds succeed.
Example of failed build logs here:
Succeeded build (FC6):
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to build package with pygtk2-devel as a build requires for FC5 in the
2. Build fails.
3. Compare with same build on FC6 or devel
Building packages for FC5 fails in the Extras buildsys
BuildRequires: pygtk2-devel should pull pkgconfig, build should succeed
Thanks for the bug report.
It looks like even the latest pygtk2-devel package in Rawhide is missing this
requirement, it's just that as of Fedora Core 6 the package pulls in other devel
packages that _do_ require pkgconfig. Thus the build succeeds.
Changing the version to "devel", but I'll backport the fix to FC-6 and FC-5.
