Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 523416
debuginfo-install hasn't learned about existence of Provides: tag
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:11:16 EST
Description of problem:
I have installed package freetype-freeworld and its -debuginfo package freetype-freeworld-debuginfo. freetype-freeworld provides freetype, but freetype-freeworld-debuginfo obviously cannot provide freetype-debuginfo.
Debuginfo-install should be smart enough to recognize that freetype is just a virtual provide and look for the correct debuginfo.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
unahppy debuginfo-install (and crashing abrt, but that's another issue)
so why don't you ask for rpmbuild to append all provides to the associated debuginfo pkg? Instead of putting this on debuginfo-install to magically know about these things?

this is an rfe at best and not one I'm likely to do.
