Description Thomas Sailer 2009-02-16 23:37:13 UTC
Description of problem:
I'm trying to package winpcap

packet.dll links with libversion.a from mingw32-w32api. libversion.a pulls in version.dll, therefore my mingw32-wpcap requires mingw32(version.dll). But no package provides it, so I cannot install the newly built rpm.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpmbuild --rebuild mingw32-wpcap-4.1.beta5-1.fc10.src.rpm
2.rpm -i mingw32-wpcap-4.1.beta5-1.fc10.noarch.rpm
Actual results:
error: Failed dependencies:                                              
        mingw32(version.dll) is needed by mingw32-wpcap-4.1.beta5-1.fc10.noarch

Expected results:
mingw32-wpcap installs without error message

I added this virtual provides to Rawhide (mingw32-filesystem 47).

Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2009-02-17 08:54:33 UTC
Fix posted in Fedora 10 updates-testing (mingw32-filesystem 40-3.fc10.1).
Please let us know if this resolves the problem.

Also (and more importantly) winpcap is a "development tool or library"
and therefore eligible to be added to the Fedora MinGW project.  To
do this, you will need to file a Review Request for the package:
