Description Thomas Sailer 2011-08-26 09:34:56 UTC
Description of problem:

When trying to build:

I get:
error: the following dependencies where unsatisfied:
   optim needs miscellaneous >= 1.0.11
 optim needs struct >= 1.0.9

Even though:

are installed.

The octave-optim spec file uses the RPM macro %octave_pkg_build, which expands to:
octave -H -q --no-site-file --eval 'pkg build '\''-verbose'\'' /var/tmp/octave-optim-1.0.16-2.fc17.x86_64 /home/sailer/rpmbuild/BUILD/optim-1.0.16'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(though this bug is not specific to rawhide, it's reproducible on F15 as well)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.wget http://sailer.fedorapeople.org/octave-optim-1.0.16-2.fc15.src.rpm
2.rpmbuild --rebuild octave-optim-1.0.16-2.fc15.src.rpm
Actual results:
error: the following dependencies where unsatisfied:
   optim needs miscellaneous >= 1.0.11
 optim needs struct >= 1.0.9

Expected results:
successfully built octave-optim binary package

Works fine for me with:


Rawhide scratch build http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=3309487 built fine.  F15 build roots might not be up to date at the moment.  Should be once the recent octave updates are pushed to stable which should be soon.

I am 99% sure I commented on this issue and closed this yesterday. The problem was that I had accidentally done a buildroot override for octave-3.4.2-1.fc1{5,6} instead of octave-3.4.2-2.fc1{5,6}.

So, even though octave-3.4.2-2.fc16 was already in F16 stable, the buildroot override took preference, and compiling extensions didn't work in 3.4.2-1.

I succcesfully rebuild octave-optim yesterday after correcting the override.

Comment 3 Thomas Sailer 2011-11-28 18:25:03 UTC
Still does not work for me, see

Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2012-12-22 04:17:29 UTC
I think I've found the problem.  In the pkg build code, install() is called is such a way a to be completely impossible to test the package deps yet it is being requested to do so.  For now I'm patching build() to call install and telling it not check deps.

As I understand it, upstream is looking to do a major rewrite of the pkg functions so hopefully this will get addressed.
