Running jpackage to build an RPM will add some Requires to the package.
It comes from the Template file:
%if "xPACKAGE_DEFAULT_DEPENDENCIES" != x || "xPACKAGE_CUSTOM_DEPENDENCIES"
Requires: PACKAGE_DEFAULT_DEPENDENCIES PACKAGE_CUSTOM_DEPENDENCIES
Building on OpenSUSE will give us these Requires:
+%if "xglibc, libX11-6, libXau6, libXext6, libXi6, libXrender1, libXtst6,
libasound2, libxcb1, libz1" != x || "x" != x
+Requires: glibc, libX11-6, libXau6, libXext6, libXi6, libXrender1,
libXtst6, libasound2, libxcb1, libz1
+#avoid ARCH subfolder
We override the RPM spec file with resource directory. I copied the RPM
spec file content from the one jpackage generated and added something extra
Unfortunately this RPM will not install on Fedora, but installs fine on
OpenSUSE where I built it.
Installing on Fedora will spew out this line for all these Requires.
nothing provides libX11-6
Are these Requires needed by Java? What is the consequences if these are
not available on the system installing the RPM?
It is an JavaFX application we are packaging.
