Description Glen Foster 2001-06-15 14:33:16 UTC
Description of Problem: with the 7.1 product, you cannot build the 4Suite
RPM without having python-devel installed.   Yet, if you "rpm -ba
/usr/src/redhat/SPECS/4Suite.spec", you do NOT get an error from rpm about
missing/unsatisfied build dependencies.  If you install the python-devel
rpm, it the 4Suite SRPM builds without problems.

How Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e python-devel
2. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/SRPMS/4Suite*.src.rpm
3. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/4Suite*spec
4. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/RedHat/RPMS/python-devel*
5. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/4Suite*spec

Actual Results:
first 3 steps result in a failure WITHOUT a build-requires error from
next 2 steps build the SRPM without fail

Expected Results: I would expect an rpm error message to be written to
stderr informing me the 4Suite SRPM cannot be built without installing thje
python-devel RPM.
