rpm dependancy


Hi All,

I am making an rpm, and I would like to add a manual dependancy for a file, but that file is not provided by any rpms, so it is not registered. Is there a way to set a dependancy for a non-rpm file? Any ideas?
Thanks!

I don't think so. The rpm program only has the ability to search for dependencies within the rpm data base. It does not go out and check the actual files to see if they are there or not.
