Re: [opensuse-packaging] What needs to be changed in specfiles to allow 64 bit modules to be used instead of 32 bit ones [using opensuse x86_64 system to install on] ?

Thanks

Told you so.

# zypper ar -f -c

dnhRepo
Adding repository 'dnhRepo'

# zypper ref
# zypper in bugzilla

I won't keep that repo though! Much less maintain it. I give you
2 weeks before I delete it[1].

Read the whole thread again, read the error messages, "grok" what I
did and why. Reproduce in your project. Feel free to ask how to handle
"breakages" like this with perl-Email-Send
https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:dnh:doiggl:bugzilla/perl-Email-Send

Yes, I think I know why there's the "unresolvable" (educated guess,
comes with the experience), but try yourself first!

[@others: don't tell him!]

Anyway, as I wrote before: I think you need some more basics first,
some more RPM basics, some OBS, some build stuff like gcc/make etc.
before you tackle more complex packages. First of all: learn to read
error messages better. Weeding out the relevant ones from the warnings
is not always easy, we all know that. And it can be _VERY_ tedious if
you don't have the experience yet, to scan better for the relevant
stuff.

You're making progress, but I think you should concentrate on small,
easy packages. Actually, bugzilla with the load of a few small perl
packages should be a nice challenge with the headstart we gave you.
Now, just try to maintain that for a bit, understand why and what and
how my stuff worked, and how the "unresolved" problem with
perl-Email-Send can be "fixed". Please DON'T tackle more packages for
the time being.

Let's first get you on a more solid footing, eh?
