Description Glen Foster 2001-06-15 15:34:27 EDT
Description of Problem: with the 7.1 product, you cannot build the dia SRPM
without having libxml-devel installed.   But, if "rpm -ba
/usr/src/redhat/SPECS/dia*spec" is executed, you do NOT get an error from
rpm about missing/unsatisfied build dependencies.  If you install the
libxml-devel rpm, the dia SRPM builds without problems.

 How Reproducible: Always

 Steps to Reproduce:
 1. rpm -e libxml-devel
 2. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/SRPMS/dia*.src.rpm
 3. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/dia*spec
 4. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/RedHat/RPMS/libxml-devel*
 5. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/dia*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 dia SRPM cannot be built without installing the
libxml-devel RPM.

Additional Information:
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2001-06-15 15:57:05 EDT
Added some BuildRequires in rawhide
Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-07-19 09:53:16 EDT
Sorry, I tested this incompletely last time and I have discovered more missing
build-dependencies.  In addition to the current set of build-dependencies, the
dia SRPM also needs dependencies for:


This defect should be fixed before the next release, and preferably before the
next public beta.
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2001-07-19 15:02:12 EDT
Dia 0.88.1-3 has these new requirements
