Description Paul Wouters 2003-03-01 00:50:24 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030131

Description of problem:
Tries to built python from source rpm, failed on finding krb5.h.
I assume this is a missing dependancy.

Installing krb5-devel resolved this

(note. I selected phoebe on the previous page, this one only lets me
select 8.0)

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. on a system without krb5-devel installed, --rebuild python
2. satisfy all the -devel package dependancies and try again
3. compile fails on missing krb5.h
4. install krb5-devel
5. be happy :)

Comment 1 Mihai Ibanescu 2003-04-16 18:15:43 UTC
In Red Hat 9, openssl-devel (which is a prerequisite to build python) requires
krb5-devel, so adding krb5-devel would not gain anything. I tried to see if
python-2.2.2 builds without krb5-devel on 8.0 - and it does.

Looks like a NOTABUG to me (or NOTABUGANYMORE :-)
