Description James Antill 2010-06-01 18:44:21 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #598221 +++

On a quick look, this looks like a yum (or mock?) bug to me.

javasqlite specifically wants both 1.5 and 1.6 java-devel packages installed at build time, and has:

BuildRequires:  java-devel = 1:1.6.0
BuildRequires:  java-devel = 1.5.0

java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel satisfies the first but not the second, and does not obsolete the package providing the second (java-1.5.0-gcj-devel).  However, only java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel got installed according to the root log so failure is expected as build requirements are not met.

Curiously, I cannot reproduce on a F-13 x86_64 host, it builds fine in mock here; both java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel and java-1.5.0-gcj-devel get installed as intended.

so here's the backstory:

mock gets the requires from the srpm
it calls rpmUtils.miscutils.formatRequire() to return them

rpm-python changed so it is now offering Longs instead of ints as the requiresflags.

this meant that formatRequire breaks and doesn't return the requires versions at all - just the requiresnames. :(

the patch at the top of this comment fixes it and makes all of this work.

Comment 1 James Antill 2010-06-01 18:45:14 UTC
Pretty sure this applies to rpm-python 4.8.0 in RHEL-6.

Patch is trivial and harmless anyway.
