Description Gene Czarcinski 2003-04-11 18:19:41 UTC
Description of problem:

Mozilla appears to require the "old" gcc/gcc-c++ compiler and libraries. 
However, the comps.xml entry for mozilla requires compat-gcc-c++ (instead of
more likely  compat-libstdc++).  This in turn drags in compat-gcc and
glibc-devel even if no other development stuff selected.  The compat-gcc-c++ is
likely needed to build the package but not for the runtime binary packages.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-04-11 18:31:45 UTC
Hm, this appears to have crept in when genfullcomps was run.

Comment 2 Gene Czarcinski 2003-04-11 21:41:40 UTC
Mmmm ... I thought the "comps" component was the one for reporting stuff about
the  file specifying package grouping/select.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-04-11 21:46:50 UTC
You really don't want to know why this happens...  I'll see what I can hack up
(and yes, technically it is comps, but this is "tools surrounding comps" so it
falls more into my lap :)

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2003-05-16 21:26:11 UTC
This is magically fixed with rawhide (since mozilla is built with gcc 3.2) but
some heuristics changes are still needed for getfullcomps

Slightly better heuristics now used.
