Description kestes 1999-07-21 21:01:12 UTC
WE would like to have a feature like autoreqprov to turn
off requires but not dependencies.  This would be used
for when we package large applications like oraclelibraries
using rpm.  I can install the oracle client libraries
even if I do not have Cobol or Java on my system though
oracle would use those language libraries if I have them.
So I can always install oracle even if I have a minimal
system but the dependency strucuture might lead me to
believe otherwise.  I need the provisions from oracle so
that I can have my applications track their dependencies.

Rpm currently supports separate "Autoreq:" and "Autoprov:" tags
in a spec file to independently control the running of find-requires
and find-provides. It sounds like you need
	Autoreq: 0
in your spec fiile. You will have to add by hand whatever functional
requirements that your package needs.
