Hi,

I'm banging my head against the wall here... how do i create a
"alternate" dependency in a spec file?

I need to create a i586 rpm that has a requirement to libgstapp but
only the 32bit version.

or, in pseudoboolean:

Requires: libgstapp-0_10-0-32bit(x86-32) || libgstapp-0_10-0(x86-32)


how do i do that...

I can't point the Requires: line at absolute files, e.g.
/usr/lib/libgstapp-0.10.so.0 because that would "force" the right
package/architecture but doesn't get resolved by zypper 0.o

You want to require libgstapp-0.10.so.0, i.e. the SONAME. This is what
the automatic requires would add for binaries requiring the library.

no, as that would pull in the X86_64 package if my package gets installed
on a 64bit system... but my package is only available in 32bit and
therefor requires the 32bit libgstapp-0.10.so.0

any ideas?

If your package is 32-bit only, why do you build a 64-bit version at all? No
need for that - you can install the i386.rpm without problems on an x86-64
system.

Add ExclusiveArch: %ix86 to it
