I'm quite new to building rpms.
I’m trying to build an rpm for lightsquid . I have got the rpm to build without any
issues but now when I try and install it, it dies with missing dependencies the files are
in the install list.
[root@gregory-workstation ~]# rpm -i
error: Failed dependencies:
perl(common.pl) is needed by lightsquid-1.7-1.noarch
perl(lightsquid.cfg) is needed by lightsquid-1.7-1.noarch
I have also used mc to browse the contents on the rpm and the files are in it.. so why do
I get this error ?
These are not dependencies on files. These are automatically generated
dependencies on Perl modules, found by rpmbuild when scanning files for
Perl "use"/"require". These two modules are not made available in
search path, however, and don't declare the module name with "package"
You may need to filter them out, especially if the modules really are not
put into Perl module search path. Documentation can be found in the Wiki.
P.S. Your post does not point to the src.rpm
