Description of problem:
The GNOME2 snapshots ship both libxslt and a xsltproc packages. In rawhide,
only libxslt is shipped, and /usr/bin/xsltproc is included in it. To avoid
conflcts, the libxslt rpm should Provide xsltproc, and packages that depend on
it (like oprofile) should depend on xsltproc instead.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Get the gnome 2 snapshots of libxslt but not xsltproc from ftp.gnome.org and
install them. Then try to build the oprofile package. It'll die because it
can't find xsltproc.
Once this bug is triaged, another bug against oprofile should be filed which
depends on this bug so that it can depend on xsltproc instead of libxslt as a
build requirement. Similar checks should be done against all other packages.
I disagree with the fact that xsltproc is isolated in a separate
package in the Gnome 2 release, they should fix this, it's their
problem. BTW they could have asked, after all I'm the libxslt
maintainer of the Gnome project :-(
Turns out I was mistaken and looking at the wrong thing; the gnome 2 snap builds
are only one package, but some internal ximian builds have two, so this is a
non-issue for red hat in terms of package compatibility. (That's the reason I
filed the bug, after all. Lots of people have installed the GNOME 2 snapshot RPMs)
I've filed a bug in the Ximian bugzilla about it, I'll reference this bug.
Thanks, sorry bout the trouble.
No problem, excellent it was solved that quickly !
