Bug report: Bogus dependency in dante RPM:
How to reproduce: try "yum install dante" on any CentOS 5.x x86_64 machine
Dear RPMforge developers,
I've noticed something odd when attempting to install the Dante SOCKS
proxy server on a CentOS 5.1 x86_64 machine.
Whenever I attempt to either install Dante from RPMForge through yum or
build the RPM from source using the upstream tarball, I encounter the
following dependency error:
From what I have understood so far (mostly from searching for this
dependency on rpm.pbone.net) , this dependency is bogus, since it only
applies to earlier distros (CentOS 3 / EL3).
The really weird thing is that I can successfully build a natively
compiled binary RPM on a CentOS 5.1 x86_64 machine using either the src
rpm or the SPEC file and then I *still* get this dependency error when
trying to install the resulting binary RPM's.
At first I thought this would have to be some hardcoded dependency
specified somewhere in the Dante SPEC file, but I couldn't find any
reference to "ld-linux-x86-64.so.2(GLIBC_PRIVATE)(64bit)" anywhere in
the SPEC file.
After installing the (natively built) binary RPM's using the --nodeps
option, Dante appeared to run fine.
Do you have any idea how to remove this (apparently) false dependency?
