Description Edouard Bourguignon 2008-02-05 12:48:05 EST
Description of problem:

gnome-do requires ndesk-dbus and ndesk-dbus-glib to be installed but those
packages are missing in the Requires inside the spec file. Is there any reason?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install gnome-do
2. run gnome-do
3. lots of mono errors: ndesk-dbus-glib missing etc
Actual results:

gnome-do can't be executed

Expected results:

gnome-do should run properly, installing this package should bring ndesk-dbus
and ndesk-dbus-glib as dependencies

Additional info:

Installing ndesk-dbus and ndesk-dbus-glib by hand works great. gnome-do is
really great
Comment 1 David Nielsen 2008-02-06 00:54:09 EST
Both are build dependencies so they should be automatic runtime deps as well. I
suspect this is a case of RPM screwing me. I'm queuing up a build where these
are forced runtime deps even when they shouldn't have to be, that will fix it.
The words ugly and wrong comes to mind with regards to this "fix" but hey, RPM
seems to want a bit of hands holding.

The queued build for F-8 is here, once this hits the repos the bug will
automatically close.

Thank you for reporting this problem.
Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2008-02-06 01:03:09 EST
gnome-do- has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8
Comment 3 JM 2008-02-07 13:32:11 EST
And the gnome-do RPM needs the RPM gtk-sharp2-devel without gtk-sharp2-devel the

pkg-config --variable=libdir tomboy-addins

in /usr/bin/gnome-do

fails or better it returns an empty string. I for example have no -devel RPMs on
one of my system and there /usr/bin/gnome-do can't find the libtomboy.so and so
it can't bind the Hotkey to <Super>Space.
Comment 4 Gordon Messmer 2008-02-08 04:10:43 EST
It's possible that /usr/lib/rpm/mono-find-requires isn't detecting dependencies
properly.  Try doing 'rpmbuild -bi gnome-do', and then run mono-find-requires by
hand.  See what it outputs.  If the output doesn't include
mono(NDesk.DBus.GLib), then you might want to file a bug in the rpm-build package.

For the time being, though, it doesn't matter whether or not mono-find-requires
works, you'll still need to specify the names of the ndesk packages.  Multiple
packages "provide" 'mono(NDesk.DBus.GLib)', though I don't believe that they'll
actually make it available for other applications use:

$ yum whatprovides 'mono(NDesk.DBus.GLib)'
banshee.x86_64 : easily import, manage, and play selections from your music
f-spot.x86_64 : Photo management application
muine.x86_64 : Music Player for GNOME
ndesk-dbus-glib.x86_64 : Provides glib mainloop integration for ndesk-dbus

My setup elected to commit suicide, I'll get right on this once I get back on a
 working Fedora machine.
