Packaging error: libXmu-devel missing dependencies
Last modified: 2014-06-18 05:09:08 EDT
Description of problem:
libXmu-devel as shipped in FC-5 is missing dependencies on several other X
development packages. This causes, among others, the gai RPM in extras to fail
to build for FC-5, due to this dependency chain:
gai -> gtkglext -> libXmu -> libXt
(libXmu-devel does not require libXt-devel in FC-5; it does in FC-6 and upwards).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -q --requires libXt
2. rpm -q --requires libXt-devel
A lot of libraries required by libXt are missing -devel counterparts in
libXt-devel's required packages
libXt-devel and probably libX11-devel should be required by libXmu-devel
In Rawhide, both libXt-devel and libX11-devel are required by libXmu-devel now.
Sorry, my mistake. Espen, it doesn't matter that this was fixed in Rawhide, we
still support FC-5 and the bug should be fixed there to be resolved.
