Or you can create dummy package with only missed provides and install it too.This would be similar to saying our package provides the dependencies (via the Provides line), but I don't want to do that because it leaves the possibility of other packages falsely assuming our package provides something it doesn't. Good idea though.
Your dummy package omits BuildRoot, and actually includes files when you "build" it (failing if they are missing). For example (binary package from obsolete machine still used in emulation): --------- Summary: EDX Assembler Name: edx-asm Version: 1.1 Release: 1 License: Commercial Group: System Environment/Base BuildArch: noarch Requires: edx >= 1.1.13 %description Binary7 EDX programs for assembling EDL programs. This package is separate because the binaries are not version controlled or included in the edx SRPM. %files /bms/edx/asm3.2 /bms/edx/asm5.2 -------------- If you list individual files instead of directories, you'll know if anything disappeared. -- Stuart D.
