Description Alexander L. Belikoff 2001-02-24 01:13:50 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686; Nav)

When running kpackage on PowerTools packages, they all display weird
dependencies looking like:

rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) (<= 4.0-1), ld-linux.so.2 , libc.so.6 , 
libncurses.so.5 , libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.0) , libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.1) , libc.so.6
(GLIBC_2.1.3) , rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) (<= 3.0.4-1)

I mean, the rpmlib dependencies

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run kpackage
2. go for PowerTools packages (at least)
3. click on any package
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-02-24 08:59:21 EST
The rpmlib(...) dependencies are real. They are used internally by rpm (and are
by rpmlib, not a specific package) to track certain features/incompatibilities
in rpm packaging.

You can see the complete set of rpmlib dependencies, with a 1 line description,
by typing
	rpm --showrc
