Description Bernd Kischnick 2002-11-17 17:51:42 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020310

Description of problem:
You can't build a binary RPM from the source RPM, unless there is an old binary
version of the same RPM already installed on the build host.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
rpm -e gnome-panel
rpm -ivh gnome-panel-2.0.6-9.src.rpm
rpmbuild -bb SPECS/gnome-panel.spec

Actual Results:  error building system-tray-applet.

Expected Results:  binary rpm should be built.

Additional info:

A build of the system-tray-applet uses pkgconfig to find libpanel-applet. But
libpanel-applet has only just been built, but not installed, so pkgconfig can
only find an older version of the same package, if there is one.

The attached patch for the specfile uses a modified pkgconfig-".pc"-file that
points to the freshly built version of libpanel-applet.

Thanks for the patch. This issue goes away in the latest packages, though 
(not yet in Rawhide but will be shortly) because gnome-panel 2.1.x just includes
the applet in the main panel package. So I think I'll let things naturally fix
themselves that way.
