Description Moritz Barsnick 2003-05-08 05:31:15 EDT
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

How reproducible:
always (haven't rechecked newest RedHat Rawhide sources though)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild --rebuild coreutils-5.x.y-z.src.rpm
Actual results:
make error on texinfo: unexpected syntax

Expected results:
build cleanly

Additional info:
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.
Comment 1 Moritz Barsnick 2003-05-08 05:44:39 EDT
Sorry, the available texinfo on RedHat 7.3 is of course version 4.1. Typo, sorry
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2003-05-08 05:47:39 EDT
Fixed in CVS; will appear in next build.  Thanks for the report.
