Description Karanbir Singh 2005-07-04 17:31:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050523 CentOS/1.7.8-1.4.1.centos4 Description of problem: darcs contains BuildRequires: latex2html which dosent exist on fc3 / fe3 Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): darcs-1.0.3-2.fc3 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. rpmbuild --rebuild darcs-1.0.3-2.fc3.src.rpm 2. 3. Actual Results: error: Failed build dependencies: latex2html is needed by darcs-1.0.3-2.el4.kb.i386 Additional info: lates2html seems to be a FC4 package ( its there at : http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/4/i386/os/Fedora/RPMS/ ) - but does not exist on FC3 ( http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/3/i386/os/Fedora/RPMS/ ). How did it get build for the FC3 Extras ?
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2005-07-05 03:19:35 UTC
No idea ;-) but thanks for catching this. :) Actually it seems the buildrequires for generating docs are not needed in practice AFAICT since the source tarball comes with pre-generated html files anyway. I removed the unneeded doc buildrequires in cvs now, so it should get fixed the next time darcs gets built.
Comment 2 Karanbir Singh 2005-07-05 12:27:42 UTC
are there any build /root logs available ? be interesting to see. I find it surprising that the buildsystem is ignoring a missing BuildRequires and going ahead with the build anyway.
Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2005-07-06 08:32:59 UTC
I believe that the yum-modified version of "mach" used in the current build system ignores "yum install" failures and effectively ignores BuildRequires, which fail to install [for various reasons].
