Description Joe Shaw 2002-08-28 13:30:31 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020606

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

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 :-(

Comment 2 Joe Shaw 2002-08-28 15:29:39 EDT
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.
