Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 90439
coreutils source: needs newer texinfo
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
When trying to rebuild coreutils-5 on RedHat 7.3, it aborts because the
available texinfo(-4.3) can't handle the texinfo source from coreutils.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
coreutils >= 5.0.0
always (haven't rechecked newest RedHat Rawhide sources though)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild --rebuild coreutils-5.x.y-z.src.rpm
make error on texinfo: unexpected syntax
I don't have the log handy right now. ;-) Just try it. Upgrading to texinfo-
4.3 helps. So I assume
BuildRequires: ... texinfo ...
should be updated to something like
BuildRequires: ... texinfo >= 4.3 ...
I don't know whether texinfo-4.2 does the trick, I only tried 4.3.
Sorry, the available texinfo on RedHat 7.3 is of course version 4.1. Typo, sorry
Fixed in CVS; will appear in next build. Thanks for the report.
