Description Glen Foster 2001-06-15 21:29:31 UTC
Description of Problem: with the 7.1 product, you cannot build the joe SRPM
without having ncurses-devel installed.   But, if "rpm -ba
/usr/src/redhat/SPECS/joe*spec" is executed, you do NOT get an error from
rpm about missing/unsatisfied build dependencies.  If you install the
ncurses-devel rpm, the glms SRPM builds without problems.

How Reproducible: Always

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

Additional Information:

Comment 1 Helge Deller 2001-06-18 12:10:21 UTC
re-assigned to the "joe"-package,
it's already fixed in joe-2.9.6-1.src.rpm (7.2 tree)
