Re: rpmlint (EPEL) for EL5

Hi all,

EPEL provides rpmlint for EL5 (version 0.94 if I'm not mistaken). I've tried to install it on a test machine (RHEL 5.5) and it doesn't install because it fails to resolve dependencies, xz. I don't believe xz is provided by RHEL repositories, and it seems it's not also provided by EPEL.

Package fails to install. What are the normal procedures to get this fixed? I would assume that using a conditional to check the version and include the xz dependency only for RHEL6 or superior would do the trick, as an example:

%if 0%{?rhel_version}>= 6
Requires:  xz
%endif

Bug reports for EPEL are submitted on bugzilla.redhat.com?

xz is in the base repository of RHEL ( and EPEL builds against the latest release )
OTOH your machine needs to be updated to a more recent RHEL version:

#yum list \*xz\*
