mpfr_devel from Optional to to primary Server/Workstation channels
Last modified: 2014-07-01 08:04:48 EDT
Description of problem:
Developer Toolset v2.0 beta currently requires the user to subscribe to
the Optional channel solely for the mpfr-devel package, which is a
dependency for DTS v2.0 gcc.
Please move mpfr-devel to primary Server/Workstation channels for 6.5/5.10 to remove this extra step for DTS users.
RHEL5: 5.9, 5.10+
RHEL6: 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, 6.5+
We've discussed this issue deeply within RCM.
It looks like the only way that this package can be installed is directly or by installing devtoolset-2-gcc-plugins-devel.
There is no requires for devtoolset-2-gcc-plugins-devel within the product. So you need to install it directly or trough devtoolset-2*
The common approach is that documentation contains "If you want to install -devel packages then you need to enable optional repo".
The resolution would be not to install devtoolset-2 trough following command:
yum install devtoolset-2*
