gcc doesn't require glibc-headers
Last modified: 2008-11-01 10:34:28 EDT
Description of problem:
On a list here a user reported that he couldn't compile "Hello, world!" for lack of the standard C headers contained in glibc-headers, which gcc doesn't require
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install just gcc and direct dependencies.
Steps to Reproduce:
gcc requires glibc-devel, which requires glibc-headers. Why is a direct dependency as opposed to indirect one needed?
Not needed, really. This was reported to me by a (mostly clueless user).
Sorry for the noise. Close?
