Description Troels Arvin 2002-08-22 08:28:54 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020723

Description of problem:
I suggest that the spec-file for the net-snmp package include a "Provides"
entry, stating the net-snmp provides what ucd-snmp used to provide. This would
make it easier to recompile source RPMs which have dependencies for ucd-snmp.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Recompile source RPM package which has "BuildRequires: ucd-snmp-devel" defined.

Additional info:

The spec-file for net-snmp should have the following lines added, I think:

In the beginning:
Provides: ucd-snmp

In the '-devel' section:
Provides: ucd-snmp-devel

I tested it lightly, and there doesn't seem to be any problem in having both
Provides and Obsoletes stating the same thing.
Comment 1 Phil Knirsch 2002-08-28 07:55:39 EDT
Problem is, net-snmp and ucd-snmp are not 100% compatible, so doing a Provides
could lead to unwanted problems.

(Hint: ABI and API changes etc.).

So i'll leave the Provides out for now. But thanks for the suggestion.

Read ya, Phil
