Description Glen Foster 2001-06-18 15:55:55 EDT
Description of Problem: with the 7.1 product, you cannot build the kinput2
SRPM without having thje following RPMs installed: XFree86-devel,
Wnn6-SDK-devel, and Canna-devel.   But, if "rpm -ba
/usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kinput2*spec" is executed, you do NOT get an error
from rpm about missing/unsatisfied build dependencies with the above-listed
RPMs.  If you install the rpms (above), the kinput2 SRPM builds without

How Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
   1. rpm -e XFree86-devel Wnn6-SDK-devel Canna-devel
   2. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/SRPMS/kinput2*.src.rpm
   3. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kinput2*spec
   4. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/RedHat/RPMS/XFree86-devel* (and Wnn6-SDK-devel*
and Canna-devel*)
   5. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kinput2*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 kinput2 SRPM cannot be built without installing the
previously-mentioned RPM.

This problem still exists the day before 7.2 beta-2
Comment 2 Nakai 2001-07-11 09:26:53 EDT
Should be fixed in kinput2-v3-15.src.rpm
