Build output for xmms (170.11 KB, text/plain)

Description Glen Foster 2001-06-18 13:55:17 UTC
Description of Problem: with the 7.1 product, you cannot build the xmms
SRPM without having gnome-core-devel installed.   But, if "rpm -ba
/usr/src/redhat/SPECS/xmms*spec" is executed, you do NOT get an error from
rpm about missing/unsatisfied build dependencies.  If you install the
gnome-core-devel rpm, the xmms SRPM builds without problems.

How Reproducible: Always

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

Actual Results:
first 3 steps result in a failure WITHOUT a build-requires error from rpm
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 xmms SRPM cannot be built without installing the
gnome-core-devel RPM.

Additional Information:

Comment 1 Helge Deller 2001-06-18 14:50:28 UTC
fixed in xmms-1.2.4-17.src.rpm

Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-07-23 18:44:15 UTC
Sorry, I tested this incompletely last time, and I have recently discovered
more missing build-dependencies.  In addition to the current set of build
dependenceies, the xmms SRPM also needs build dependencies for:


IN ADDITION(!), it looks like there are other optional packages that may or may
not be necessary for build dependencies.  Judging from the build output, it
appears there are possible requirements for Mesa-devel, libogg-devel, and
libxml-devel.  I'll attach the build output to this defect after this message is

Regardless, the gnome-libs-devel dependency must be present for this package to
build; otherwise the build fails with a rather cryptic message...

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-07-23 18:59:51 UTC
Fixed in 1.2.5-5. The other (libogg, libvorbis, Mesa) are for optional plugins.
