#220 closed enhancement (fixed)

Provide virtual WPI to satisfy dependencies (uclip)

Description

As discussed, uclip is currently available as WPI and as RPM. Installing as RPM does not satisfy dependencies of other applications which check the WarpIN database.

Ideally, upon installing such a package via RPM, the WarpIN database will be updated to reflect the presence of the package on the system, without the user needing to install both RPM and WPI (and thereby increasing the risk of conflicts).

This ticket references uclip as that seems like a good place to start. kLIBC itself would be another critical component for this treatment.

The code and spec is done. we are now testing it.
To have as example uclip using it, it needs a spec change and a rpm rebuild.

Please add a ticket for every rpm you need the wpi entry.

wpi4rpm has been provided in order to allow fake WarpIN entries.
