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):
Steps to Reproduce:
Recompile source RPM package which has "BuildRequires: ucd-snmp-devel" defined.
The spec-file for net-snmp should have the following lines added, I think:
In the beginning:
In the '-devel' section:
I tested it lightly, and there doesn't seem to be any problem in having both
Provides and Obsoletes stating the same thing.
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
