Comment 2 Nicolas Lécureuil 2021-02-21 18:56:52 CET
i think this is because of mock.

I think it should be a recommend.
Comment 3 David Walser 2021-02-24 18:06:01 CET
Installing mock shouldn't remove urpmi-debuginfo-install though, so we should just fix mock.  As for task-packager, *everything* it installs should be a recommends.

> i think this is because of mock.

You are wrong. Mock doesn't have a hard dependency on yum-utils, which is the other provider of "pkg-command(debuginfo-install)". It's only a recommends. If URPMI doesn't have a broken depsolver (which I wouldn't rule out), then mock's Recommends should be ignored.

> I think it should be a recommend.

I didn't even know task-packager existed, but I totally agree with its existing package set.

Stop with your urpmi bashing ( i was just guessing before searching, without any criticize :) )
99% of the time it does its works just well ( like here see below ).

%package -n urpmi-debuginfo-install
Summary: debuginfo-install shim for urpmi
License: CC0
Group: System/Packaging
# Conflict with older versions where debuginfo-install was bundled
Conflicts: gdb < 7.12-13
Conflicts: dnf-utils

Maybe here the Conflicts against dnf-utils should be versionned to fix our issue, because maybe dnf-utils had a debuginfo-install in the past.
Comment 6 Neal Gompa 2021-02-27 03:42:39 CET
dnf-utils/yum-utils and urpmi-debuginfo-install both provide /usr/bin/debuginfo-install
