Description Jason Farrell 2008-05-20 19:41:58 EDT
"yum-builddep xchat-2.8.4-15.fc9.src.rpm" fails with error "Error: No Package
found for /bin/sed"

the BuildRequires line in the spec needs to be just 'sed', then it yanks in all
deps as expected
Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2008-05-20 20:00:22 EDT
You're using a broken build of yum which chokes on file dependencies (like the 
one which reported the bogus "broken dependencies" in Rawhide). A BuildRequires 
on a file is perfectly valid, and the file /bin/sed is contained in the sed 
Comment 2 Jason Farrell 2008-05-21 19:07:14 EDT
yeah, thanks, this was fixed in yum-3.2.16-2.fc9.noarch
