Description Mary Ellen Foster 2008-04-23 08:25:59 EDT
Description of problem:
kdebase4-devel for Fedora 8 has an RPM dependency on "kdebase4-libs =
%{epoch}:4.0.2-2.fc8". That looks like an unexpanded macro in the spec file, and
breaks any attempt to install it.

It looks like the "Epoch" tag in the spec file only gets included if 0%{?fedora}
> 8, so for the Fedora 8 version there's no epoch defined and a whole lot of
Requires: tags get broken.

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

Possible specfile patch

I don't fully understand the implications of changing this, so take this patch
with a large grain of salt.

Ah, it looks like the spec file in Rawhide already deals with this issue better
than my hack did. It would be nice to rebuild that for Fedora 8 too.
