Description of problem:
glibc-devel requires kernel-headers, while this rpm is now renamed to
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to install glibc-devel.
Butglibc-kernheaders Provides: kernel-headers.
Why NOTABUG??? How new users will know that they should install glibc-kernheaders*rpm, and not kernel-headers*rpm, which no longer exists? And there were such cases already. It should be a simple fix in glibc-devel spec file.
Sorry, I missed your comment, and thought you closed the bug without any explanation. But still - it is not so easy to find out that glibc-kernheaders is needed for kernel-headers.
