Description Robert Scheck 2009-06-11 11:18:57 EDT
Description of problem:
Following *.pc file causes rpmbuild to fail the package rebuild:

--- snipp ---

Name: bitlbee
Description: IRC to IM gateway
Requires: glib-2.0
Cflags: -I${includedir}

--- snapp ---

Note, this only affects rpm.org, not rpm5.org when using the same pkgconfig

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

How reproducible:
Everytime, see above and below.

Actual results:
Sorry for the non-english error message, but mock didn't somehow honor my
LANG=C :-(
rpmbuild: rpmfc.c:407: rpmfcHelper: Zusicherung »EVR != ((void *)0)« nicht erfüllt.
Child returncode was: -6

Expected results:
Working, no failure :)
Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2009-06-11 18:19:12 EDT
I would assume the cause is, that "Version:" tag is empty. And rpm5.org
solves this problem by doing then only a "Provides: pkgconfig(bitlbee)"
rather then failing... ;-)
Comment 2 Panu Matilainen 2009-06-12 06:09:35 EDT
Right, this has already been fixed for quite some time in rpm.org HEAD + 4.7.x branch, just not in 4.6.x.
Comment 3 Robert Scheck 2009-08-16 19:03:54 EDT
Panu, why is this bug report still not fixed at Fedora 10? It still prevents
me from pushing an update of bitlbee there.
