Hi *,

today, I've stumbled upon build failures for package python-Cython and all oS
distributions below 13.2, related to update-alternatives:

[ 273s] calling /usr/lib/rpm/brp-suse.d/brp-25-symlink
[ 273s] ERROR: link target doesn't exist (neither in build root nor in
installed system):
[ 273s] /usr/bin/cython -> /etc/alternatives/cython
[ 273s] Add the package providing the target to neededforbuild and Requires
[ 273s] ERROR: link target doesn't exist (neither in build root nor in

https://build.opensuse.org/package/live_build_log/devel:languages:python/python-Cython/openSUSE_13.1/x86_64

Needless to say, this package follows closely the manual:

https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Packaging_Multiple_Version_guidelines

The reason: issues with brp-check-suse package in earlier versions.

The question is, how should we workaround the issue. We can link
brp-check-suse-13.2+git20140829.9539e1d, whereever the issues occur, and
Preinstall it in the project, but that reveals other inconsistencies: it
builds for 12.3, 13.1, fails for 12.2/i586, but succeeds for 12.2/x86_64.

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:frispete:python/brp-check-suse

Fix brp-25-symlink and release updated packages.

Other possibilities?

Pete
