programming... yeah why not...
can someone tell me how i can force a dependency in an RPM i'm trying to build. it automatically sets the requirement of perl-base to 5.800, which is what i'm using, but i only want the dependency to be for 5.600, but i can't suss out how to override this. If i set "Requires: perl-base >= 5.600" then it just requires BOTH version, which naturally makes no sense...
incidentally i can't even install this rpm on my own system!
[root@trevor RPM]# rpm -Uvh RPMS/noarch/acidrip-0.6-1.noarch.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
perl-base >= 5.800 is needed by acidrip-0.6-1
[root@trevor RPM]# rpm -q perl-base
go figure... it uses MY system to work out dependencies and then wo't even install!!
