Description Ed Blackman 2003-01-17 22:38:49 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
When rebuilding (rpm -ba --target i486-linux) the 8.0 util-linux package, I got
this message:

cc -c -O2 -march=i486 -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -I../lib -Wall
-Wmissing-prototypes -Wstrict-prototypes -I/usr/include/ncurses -DNCH=0

-DUSRSBINDIR=\"/usr/sbin\" -DLOGDIR=\"/var/log\" -DVARPATH=\"/var\"
-DLOCALEDIR=\"/usr/share/locale\" -O2 -march=i486 -DSLCURSES=1 cfdisk.c -o cfdisk.o
cfdisk.c:66:24: slcurses.h: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [cfdisk.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/bob/rpmroot/BUILD/util-linux-2.11r/fdisk'
make: *** [all] Error 1

The changelog note for 2.11n-19 says, in part, "- Package has no runtime deps on
slang, so remove the BuildRequires: slang-devel", which doesn't make much sense
to me.  BuildRequires specifies compile-time dependencies.

Installing the slang-devel package allowed me to successfully build util-linux
from the SRPM.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ensure slang-devel package isn't installed.
2. Attempt to rebuild util-linux-2.11r-10.src.rpm

The dep is in the current rawhide package, and seems to have been since 2002-10-17
