I'm getting expansion errors, I cannot explain. Once I understand them
I would like to fix the issue.

Project: CrossToochain:avr
Package: avr-libc/avr-gdb
Repository: openSUSE_Factory/i586

"Nothing provides cross-avr-gcc"

But you can see that cross-avr-gcc has been built successfully in the
same project!?! See also

Actually, the package that was built is called cross-avr-gcc43.

Indeed. But why? The resulted package should be called cross-avr-gcc.

Actually from the spec file inside openSUSE:Factory (cross-avr-gcc43.spec):
Name: cross-avr-gcc43

in openSUSE:Factory, this makes part of the package gcc43

So how can I force the package to be named cross-avr-gcc instead of
cross-avr-gcc43? I think this would fix the issue finally.


I see several solutions that would work, you might want to pick the one that
fits most for you:

a) you patch the original spec file comming using the link (tends to
break on whatever update might be put in Factory... I normally try
to avoid them). The patch can have multiple ways to be achieved; you
either change the name tag back to the old one

I already began to work on this one.

or you add a Provides: cross-avr-gcc

b) you change your spec files to no longer BuildRequires:
cross-avr-gcc, but change them to BuildRequires: cross-avr-gcc43
(depending on how many specs, might be the cleanest solution)

There I need to patch more packages than in a).

c) you change your project config (osc meta -e prjconf
CrossToochain:avr) and you add a Substitute: cross-avr-gcc
cross-avr-gcc43. This substitute is immediate valid for all projects
based on top of yours (inherited).

This sounds cool, but I'll try a) first.

There might be other solutions as well, but that's the ones coming
on my mind at this moment.

Thanks a lot!
