#45 closed defect (fixed)

gcc-supc++-shared-library still unnecessarily listed as its own requirement

Reported by: estellnb Owned by: ydario
Priority: trivial Milestone:
Component: yum Version:
Severity: Keywords:


If I try to install gcc it breaks with the following error message:
Error: Package: gcc-4.4.6-15.oc00.i386 (netlabs-rel)

Requires: gcc-supc++-shared-library

Qupzilla says to require the same package but actually runs without it so that I just think about it as a stale dependency left in place while the actual package has already been included into another one. Please fix; I don`t wanna have an inconsistent package database with unfulfilled requirements.

Neithermore is there a gcc-supc++-shared-library.* (i386,i586,i686) library offered any more.

Paket gcc-stdc++-shared-library-4.4.6-15.oc00.i386 is of the newest version.
Nothing to do.

perhaps this one.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

You are right, these requirements are no longer necessary becaue RPM can generate automatic requires clauses for new packages.
The next gcc4 drop will contain this fix.

gcc4.spec: remove unnecessary explicit requirements for libssp, libstdc++, libsupc++
Committed revision 319.
