Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2001-11-07 16:47:27 EST
Description of Problem:

control-center SRPM is not self-hosting

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


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm --rebuild control-center- (WITHOUT a
control-center rpm installed)

Actual Results:

dies, looking for capplet.pc

Expected Results:

Rebuilds RPM.

Additional Information:
Installing an older control-center rpm allows it to build, but SRPM should
be self-hosting.
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-02-11 16:22:53 EST
The clean way to fix this is to move control-center-single out of the
control-center package and into a separate SRPM, then use dependencies to bind
those RPMs together tightly. 

The big pain-in-the-butt way is to apply a huge configure/makefile patch to
control-center-single tarball to link against the uninstalled libcapplet.

After discussion, decided to let this problem disappear in the GNOME 2 migration
when that happens.
