Description Steve Snyder 2009-02-13 11:02:17 EST
Description of problem:

When building the kdepim package ("rpmbuild --rebuild kdepim-4.2.0-2.fc10.src.rpm) on a fully updated Fedora 10 system, the build fails.  The failure is due to this dependency: libmal-devel >= 0.40.  This version of libmal-devel is not yet available from the Fedora repositories.  The latest available is v0.31.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run: rpmbuild --rebuild kdepim-4.2.0-2.fc10.src.rpm
2. Note complaint of unsatisfied dependency on package libmal-devel v0.40
Actual results:

Failure to build the binary packages.

Expected results:

Source package dependencies should be available to satisfy requirements.

Additional info:

Looks mostly harmless at the moment, apparently kdepim doesn't actually use it.
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2009-02-13 11:26:56 EST
Looks like we missed this one because CMake checks for libmal, but it doesn't actually use it. Fun...

From branches/KDE/4.2/kdepim/kpilot/conduits/CMakeLists.txt:
# MAL seems to be broken, or the MAL API has changed somewhat
# since the last time that the conduit was compiled by the development
# team. Since we don't use the conduit it is disabled. 
#       MESSAGE(STATUS "MAL conduit will not be compiled, not ported yet.")
#       add_subdirectory(malconduit)
#       MESSAGE(STATUS "Couldn't find mal. Won't be able to build malconduit")

So the BuildRequires is not actually needed. Try rpmbuild --rebuild --nodeps for now.

But we're pushing the new libmal (the one we used to build the updates) in the next push:

in the meantime libmal dep was removed in later versions of kdepim
