Description Christopher Stone 2006-06-03 01:10:22 UTC
Description of problem:
I am trying to build a spec file that uses OpenSceneGraph.  There is a bug in
the OpenSceneGraph spec file which causes OpenSceneGraph-devel to not pick up

Requires:	%name = %{version}-%{release}

This should read:

Requires:	%{name} = %{version}-%{release}

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

Comment 1 Ralf Corsepius 2006-06-03 02:57:58 UTC
Hmm, I don't understand what you are trying to say.

1. OpenSceneGraph-devel on fc5 does require OpenSceneGraph:

# rpm -q --requires OpenSceneGraph-devel
OpenSceneGraph = 1.0-2.fc5

2. In rpm.spec syntax, "%name" and "%{name}" are supposed to be completely
equivalent: %{name} is the escaped form of %name.

If your proposal above does what you say, your observation would mean you to
have found a bug in rpm.

I am having problems with this package under mock.  Please see my discussion on
the Fedora-Extras List.  At first I thought it was not picking up the necessary
packages and thought this was the cause.  It turns out there is some other
problem here, possibly a bug in mock.

Please see the discussion on F-E-L:

Updating bug summary per your latest comments:

=> Something is broken in this package's libraries' SONAMES handling.

... to be investigated ...

Comment 4 Ralf Corsepius 2006-06-07 06:32:17 UTC
Should now be fixed with 1.0-4. Builds for fc6 and fc5 are currently in the

I am not sure if I am going to fix it for FE3/FE4. Though these suffer from the
same issue, an SONAME change has occured between FE4 (OpenSceneGraph-0.9.x) and
FE5 (OpenSceneGraph-1.0).

Comment 5 Ralf Corsepius 2006-06-07 09:36:24 UTC
I've backported the hacks I've applied to 1.0 for FC5/FC6 to 0.9.9 for FC3/FC4.

So, this issue should also be fixed in 0.9.9-5 for FC3 and FC4, should the
(currently broken) buildsystem once finish building them.
