libao-devel doesn't depend on libao, which is why it doesn't get pulled in.
 If libao.i386 is really needed, then having libao-devel depend on it would
be the preferred solution.
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2007-01-11 14:52:41 EST
Trivial fix
Comment 4 Behdad Esfahbod 2007-01-11 15:51:16 EST
It does depend on libao = %{version} AFAICS.  I can change that to libao =
%{version}-%{release}.  Not sure if that makes much difference here.
Comment 9 Florian La Roche 2007-08-18 03:43:06 EDT
If the requires for the package is already in, then the rpm
itself is ok. Question is what benefit the libao-devel.i386 should
be if the libao.i386 is missing and you cannot link against it.

Comment 10 Behdad Esfahbod 2007-11-28 06:03:25 EST
So, the cause of this issue is that libao suppresses automatic dependency generator:

%define _use_internal_dependency_generator 0
%define __find_requires %{SOURCE1}

The reason it does that is to avoid requiring esd, artsd, audiofile, and asound.
 SOURCE1 is:


filelist=`sed "s/['\"]/\\\&/g"`

{ echo $filelist | tr [:blank:] \\n | /usr/lib/rpm/find-requires | \
        grep -v artsc | grep -v esd | grep -v audiofile | grep -v asound
} | sort -u

I don't know enough RPM to tell what SOURCE1 should be doing that it isn't. :(
Comment 11 Dennis Gregorovic 2007-11-28 16:11:14 EST

Do you have a suggestion for how this package can be tweaked such that libao
properly depends on libao-devel?
Comment 12 Bill Nottingham 2007-11-28 16:43:14 EST
A simple:

%ifarch ia64 x86_64 s390x ppc64
Requires: libao.so.<whatever>()(64bit)
Requires: libao.so.<whatever>

should work.
Comment 13 Behdad Esfahbod 2007-12-17 14:52:43 EST
Built libao-0.8.6-6.
Can someone test this please before I go through the errata process?  Thanks.
Comment 14 Dennis Gregorovic 2007-12-17 16:24:58 EST
I've tagged the build so that it should be picked up in tomorrow's nightly, and
we can see if that fixes the problem.
