Description Matěj Cepl 2009-09-15 12:05:31 UTC
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):
yum-utils-1.1.23-3.fc12.noarch

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.see above
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
unahppy debuginfo-install (and crashing abrt, but that's another issue)

Expected results:
installed freetype-freeworld-debuginfo

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.
