Description of problem:
I was trying to make a scratch build in the dist-6E-epel build target that requires fftw-devel. It fails with:
DEBUG util.py:255: No Package Found for fftw-devel
There is no fftw package in
But the fftw package seems not to have been branched for EPEL6 anyway.
Is there a reason for this?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
none (which is the problem)
OK I can now see what happened.
There was a fftw package in the RHEL6 beta2 release - in the optional repo. So at the time EPEL6 was branched, there was no need to branch fftw.
$ ( RHELBASE="http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/rhel/beta/6" ; repoquery --disablerepo=* --repofrompath=rhel6-optional,$RHELBASE/optional/x86_64/os --repofrompath=rhel6,$RHELBASE/x86_64/os --enablerepo=rhel6 --enablerepo=rhel6-optional fftw* )
But now we are using the 5.90 pre-release, which does not have a fftw package anymore.
$ ( RHELBASE="http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/rhel/beta/5.90Server" ; repoquery --disablerepo=* --repofrompath=rhel-optional,$RHELBASE/optional/x86_64/os --repofrompath=rhel,$RHELBASE/x86_64/os --enablerepo=rhel --enablerepo=rhel-optional fftw* )
(* no output *)
This issue is also discussed at https://fedorahosted.org/rel-eng/ticket/3916
In the end RHEL 6 Final was released with an fftw package, so no need for an EPEL package after all - closing.
