Comment 1 Kevin Fenzi 2009-04-08 20:24:55 EDT
The spec has a BuildRequire on kdelibs3-devel, which should require qt3-devel... 

Is that not being pulled in?
Comment 2 Cory Jaeger 2009-04-08 20:52:18 EDT
Arrg.  I forgot that I had removed BuildRequire kdelibs3-devel last night.  I was building a custom rpm that installs without all the kde fluff and kde-addressbook tie-in.

As it's really a problem with mucking about with the .spec and not strictly a problem with the .spec I offer my apologies. My bad.

I can understand why sub-dependancies wouldn't be included.  Although if qt3-devel had been in there it would have saved me an hour figuring out how to build my non-kde rpm.
Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2009-04-08 22:16:35 EDT
Yeah, sorry about that. :( 

I suppose I could add qt3-devel in there just in case... 

Anyhow, shall we close this now?
Comment 4 Cory Jaeger 2009-04-09 10:53:53 EDT
Yeah.  I suspect that most people who would take the time to edit the .spec file and make a non-kde build of twinkle would be able to eventually figure out what was wrong.  And it's not really a bug when it's due to end-user customization of the package so closing this would probably be best.
