Ticket #2244 (closed defect: wontfix)
OpenSUSE rpm does not check all dependencies on install
|Reported by:||rombert||Owned by:|
I downloaded http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/2.0.2/VirtualBox-2.0.2_36488_openSUSE11-1.i586.rpm and installed it without any problems.
Building the kernel module failed ( I expected something catastrophic ) and the log pointed out that gcc and make were not installed.
This is a bit unintuitive, since I'm accustomed to rpm packages always checking for dependencies before installing.
I would welcome an update of the Requires: line of the rpm spec file which would check for the prerequisites.
