Actual Results:  Build fails

Expected Results:  Build should succeed

Additional info:

Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2005-05-11 15:24:59 UTC
This should be an requirement of rpm-build, not iptables.
Assigning to rpm.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2005-05-11 15:40:06 UTC
eu-strip is mentioned only in /usr/lib/rpm/ which is deliberately configured off in rpm-
build in order to avoid the dependency.

The dependency needs to be in redhat-rpm-config, not rpm-build, if you must have a dependency.

Comment 3 Paul Howarth 2006-06-18 09:13:53 UTC
This is needed for FC4 too. If/when the Fedora Extras buildsystem switches to
the new version of mock that has a much smaller default package list, elfutils
won't be included by default as there is nothing in the default package list
that depends on elfutils. This will result in broken debuginfo packages and
unstripped binaries for newly-built FE4 packages.

Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 23:11:15 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Comment 5 Paul Howarth 2006-07-11 05:54:50 UTC
Changing from FC3 to FC4. FC5 rpm-build has this dep already.

Comment 6 Matthew Miller 2006-07-11 15:47:47 UTC
Note that FC4 will enter legacy state in a few weeks, so if it isn't fixed in
Core by then, it's incredibly unlikely to get fixed at all.

True. I don't really expect it to get fixed, and it will have to be one of the
issues worked around as described in Bug #196930 for building legacy packages in

Comment 8 Paul Nasrat 2006-08-14 18:35:45 UTC
As above, fixed in later rpm but not going to release an FC4 rpm update at this
