Re: why does rpm ask for an earlier release?



thanks.
I may not have make it clear, when I checked the package using
"rpm -Vp Python-2.7-2.x86_64.rpm"
I did not see any references to /home/sysadm/rpmbuild/Python2.7/Python2.7-root/usr/local/bin/python2.7
but then when I tried to install the rpm as root
rpm -ivh Python-2.7-2.x86_64.rpm
it failed with the
 

error: Failed dependencies:

       /home/sysadm/rpmbuild/Python2.7/Python2.7-root/usr/local/bin/python2.7

I still not seeing where I may have set the dependency. I google and couldn't find any similar errors. I must have done something obviously stupid :-(.

Thanks

Look in your package for Python script(s) containing in the first line
/home/sysadm/rpmbuild/Python2.7/Python2.7-root/usr/local/bin/python2.7

This is wrong (because it contains the buildroot).

This will be used as an automatic dependency and you should take care
of letting your package put the correct path there (probably
/usr/local/bin/python2.7 in your case).
