Description John Reiser 2003-02-23 05:58:05 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020529

Description of problem:
The prelink .rpm is not installed for a Workstation install (software
development) on i686, but it should be.  For instance, prelink is a prerequisite
for rebuilding glibc-2.3.1-46.src.rpm for target i686.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install phoebe (RHL 8.0.94) Workstation configuration on i686.
2.Download and install glibc-2.3.1-46.src.rpm.
3.Try to rebuild with "rpmbuild -bc --target i686 glibc.spec".

Actual Results:  rpmbuild fails; missing prerequisites:
    prelink >= 0.0.2-5

Expected Results:  Workstation configuration should be enough to rebuild any
.rpm, including for i686.

Comment 1 Tim Powers 2003-02-23 12:35:57 UTC
Actually, the assumption that a workstation install should be enough to build
any package  is incorrect. The only way to guarantee everything will be built is
to perform an install of "everything". 

Not all packages are in the comps file, only the packages that the majority of
users use. Just because a componenet has  "development" in the name doesn't mean
that you will be able to build all of the packages in the distro. In other
words, comps is meant for installtime deps, not buildtime.
