Description Glen Foster 2001-06-20 16:46:22 UTC
Description of Problem: with the 7.1 product, you cannot build the anaconda
SRPM without having the following RPMs installed:

But, if "rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/anaconda*spec" is executed, you do
NOT get an error from rpm about missing/unsatisfied build dependencies from
the above list of RPMs. If you install the above list of RPMs, the anaconda
SRPM builds with no errors.  Un-installing any of the above RPMs also
results in a build failure due to unstated-yet-present dependencies.

How Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
    1. rpm -e <above-list-of-RPMs>
    2. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/SRPMS/anaconda*.src.rpm
    3. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/anaconda*spec
    4. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/RedHat/RPMS/<above-list-of-RPMs> (and their
 associated dependencies)
    5. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/anaconda*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 anaconda SRPM cannot be built without installing
the above list of RPMs.
