I'm having trouble installing a set of custom build rpms. The spec file produces 7 binary rpms. I installed 5 of them using rpm -ivh and then decided that I also needed the remaining two. When I try to install those, rpm complains:
# sudo rpm -ivh foo-lib-cpp-devel-0.7.0-1.x86_64.rpm error: Failed dependencies: foo = 0.7.0-1 is needed by foo-lib-cpp-devel-1:0.7.0-1.x86_64
Yet that exact dependency is already installed:
# rpm -q foo foo-0.7.0-1.x86_64
I discovered 'rpm -R', which provides more details on the package:
# rpm -qvRp foo-lib-cpp-devel-0.7.0-1.x86_64.rpm auto: /usr/bin/pkg-config manual: boost-devel manual: libevent-devel >= 1.2 auto: libfoo.so.0()(64bit) auto: libfootnb.so.0()(64bit) auto: libfooz.so.0()(64bit) auto: pkgconfig(foo) = 0.7.0 rpmlib: rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1 rpmlib: rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1 rpmlib: rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1 rpmlib: rpmlib(VersionedDependencies) <= 3.0.3-1 manual: foo = 0.7.0-1 manual: zlib-devel rpmlib: rpmlib(PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1
The only suspicious thing I see is the '-1:' token in the lib-cpp-devel package, which I can't explain.
What is the '-1:' and could that be related to this issue? How can I debug this further or workaround it? FWIW this is all occuring on a relatively fresh install of CentOS 6.
