Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 461183
Possible issue with Requires: ncurses
Last modified: 2013-03-11 13:39:29 EDT
Description of problem:
The description of libpfm-devel has this text at the end:
Is this meant to be in the %description as text, or should this have been processed as package dependency metadata?
rpm -qR doesn't show a requirement on ncurses, FWIW
(FWIW, spotted by rpmlint's tag-in-description test, which has this description, which may or may not be appropriate in this case: "Something that looks like a tag was found in the package's description. This may indicate a problem where the tag was not actually parsed as a tag but just textual description content, thus being a no-op. Verify if this is the case, and move the tag to a place in the specfile where %description won't fool the specfile parser, and rebuild the package.")
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qi libpfm-devel

Proposed patch to make libpfm-devel have correct dependency
This patch should move the requires so it isn't assumed to be part of the description for libpfm-devel.
Low priority, but trivial patch available.
