Description Glen Foster 2001-06-18 15:00:19 EDT
Description of Problem: with the 7.1 product, you cannot build the kterm
SRPM without having XFree86-devel and ncurses-devel installed.   But, if
"rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kterm*spec" is executed, you do NOT get an
error from rpm about missing/unsatisfied build dependencies.  If you
install the XFree86-devel and ncurses-devel RPMs, the kterm SRPM builds
without problems.

How Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
   1. rpm -e XFree86-devel ncurses-devel
   2. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/SRPMS/kterm*.src.rpm
   3. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kterm*spec
   4. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/RedHat/RPMS/XFree86-devel* (and ncurses-devel*)
   5. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kterm*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 kterm SRPM cannot be built without installing the
XFree86-devel and ncurses-devel RPMs.

Should be fixed in kterm-6.2.0-22.src.rpm
