Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 44733
dialog SRPM needs build dependency on ncurses-devel
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:46:17 EST
Description of Problem: with the 7.1 product, you cannot build the dialog
SRPM without having ncurses-devel installed. But, if "rpm -ba
/usr/src/redhat/SPECS/dialog*spec" is executed, you do NOT get an error
from rpm about missing/unsatisfied build dependencies. If you install the
ncurses-devel rpm, the dialog SRPM builds without problems.
How Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e ncurses-devel
2. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/SRPMS/dialog*.src.rpm
3. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/dialog*spec
4. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/RedHat/RPMS/ncurses-devel*
5. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/dialoh*spec
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 dialog SRPM cannot be built without installing the
Fixed in dialog-0.9a-5.
Additionally removed perl dependency.
