Summary: lsb-release requires /etc/SuSE-release
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.2
Version: Factory
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Basesystem
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: vuntz@xxxxxxxxxx

Found By: ---

The lsb_release program requires /etc/SuSE-release to work fine, apparently.
But it's not required by the package. This is an issue when building packages
that require lsb_release and depend on its output.

vuntz@lyon ~/>strace -f -e trace=open lsb_release -i -s
[pid 6907] open("/etc/SuSE-release", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 3

vuntz@lyon ~/>rpm -q --requires lsb-release
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadIsLzma) <= 4.4.2-1

vuntz@lyon ~/>rpm -q --whatprovides /etc/SuSE-release
