normp: darix: appears that adrianS is out of office today (hasn't been online for a while). Is there somebody else that could help us resolve the package mapping question from yesterday about dbus on fedora?
judas_iscariote: normp: what's the issue eh ? ;)
normp: I have a project that requires hwinfo. On SuSE, no problem - hwinfo is fine there. I have to include (build) hwinfo in my project, for fedora. hwinfo has a Requires (but not BuldRequires) on dbus-1. fedora defaults with dbus-0.
normp: KDE/KDE4 has a dbus-1 package on fedora. I linked that project.
normp: At my project (omc-base, which requires hwinfo) build prep, it installs dbus-1 (as expected) but immediately after, tries to install dbus-0, causing conflicts.
normp: Suggestion was that this is likely a package-mapping problems with dbus on fedora.
normp: If I add dbus-1 as a 'BuildRequires' on hwinfo, I get identical problem building hwinfo, if that helps narrow it down?
The problem is that some package within the BuildRequires requires dbus-0. This is nothing what can be fixed via mappings, it is a packaging issue of dbus-1 in first place.
Either dbus-1 packages for Fedora needs to be able to coexist with dbus-0 packages or it must be possible to setup a system with dbus-1 only.
This is not an issue of the build service, it is a coding issue in first place. If dbus-1 is incompatible with dbus-0, but can't coexist it is problem within dbus in first place.
