ksymoops RPM does not list all dependencies

The ksymoops program has dependencies that aren't specified in its RPM package.

At the minimum, its spec file needs this:

    Requires: binutils

I *think* depending on binutils will pull in everything that ksymoops needs, but
I'm not certain.

I encountered this packaging bug because I needed to install ksymoops on a
server which had been installed with the "Minimal Install" option, and it
quickly became apparent that ksymoops had dependencies not indicated by its RPM

Note that the ksymoops in released versions of Red Hat Linux (e.g., Psyche) also
have this packaging bug.

ksymoops isn't actually needed with current kernels; it's since been removed
from the tree.

Comment 2 James Ralston 2003-01-28 06:57:02 UTC

Based on its input and output, I'm guessing that ksymoops is still needed for
RHL <=8.0?
