Thread: Missing LSB files in SLES 12

    Missing LSB files in SLES 12

    I am with an ISV trying to get our LSB compliant application working on SLES 12.

    Code:
    # rpm -i RPMS/noarch/mytestrpm-1.0-0.noarch.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies:
            lsb-core-noarch is needed by mytestrpm-1.0-0.noarch
    I don't think this should be possible based on the documentation I've read.

    Code:
    # lsb_release
    LSB Version:    n/a
    # lsb_release -a
    LSB Version:    n/a
    Distributor ID: SUSE LINUX
    Description:    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12
    Release:        12
    Codename:       12
    I don't believe that "n/a" is what should be showing up as lsb version. I can't find anything in the repositories to satisfy the lsb-core-* dependencies or provide /etc/lsb-release. Am I missing something obvious?

    Re: Missing LSB files in SLES 12

    A few things come to mind:

    First, this looks like your own RPM, meaning you probably have the spec
    file defining the requirement. Assuming the RPM you built on this system
    has a program within that actually runs, meaning all dependencies are
    actually satisfied regardless of the package's defined requirements (from
    your spec file), your package is incorrect (since it is complaining about
    a missing dependency that is actually there).

    Second, the version should not matter as the error does not mention a
    required version, just a dependent package by name. If you look for that
    package using rpm or zypper you should see it, presumably, since (see
    previous paragraph/point) your application presumably runs on this box:

    Code:
    rpm -qf `which lsb_release`
    Use the returned package's name in your spec file as the dependency
    instead of lsb-core-noarch and maybe that will help.

    Finally, I would try using 'zypper' to install anything as it will pull
    in dependencies if it can find them where 'rpm' will not unless all
    dependencies are specified on the command line. Using zypper will not
    help you if the package dependencies call for incorrect packages, but most
    of the time that is not the case.

    Hi
    Further to ab's comment, if your building for multiple distros and
    releases then use a %if wrapper eg;
    Code:
    %if 0%{?suse_version} == 1315
    BuildRequires: lsb-release
    %else
    BuildRequires: lsb-core
    More info here;

    Re: Missing LSB files in SLES 12

    Yes. I am with an ISV trying to produce a single RPM which works on all LSB compliant Linux distributions. RHEL 5, RHEL 6, SLES 10, SLES 11, as well as CentOS and Oracle variants. We have been successfully implementing this for years, until SLES 12.

    https://www.suse.com/partners/isv/po...migration.html

    SuSE makes strong statements recommending that I follow the LSB standard.

    http://refspecs.linuxbase.org/LSB_4....pkgdepend.html

    I believe I am correctly implementing my package dependencies according to the LSB standard. There should be installable packages or some other mechanism for providing those lsb-core-* dependencies. (Or I am doing it wrong.)

    http://refspecs.linuxbase.org/LSB_4....sbrelease.html

    The example output of the lsb_release command is given in the standard. SuSE 12 returns "n/a" which strongly indicates to me that something is missing from my install. I need to know where to get the missing bits.

    We only ever use zypper for package installation.

    We perplexed as to why the LSB mechanisms are missing in SLES 12. Or we have somehow failed to install them.

    Hi
    It's best effort as 4 is old...

    This package is present in openSUSE. Similar mechanisms are present in SLES 10 and 11. Why is (or where has) it gone in SLES 12?

    Thanks. That is what I was missing. Very disappointing though.

    Re: Missing LSB files in SLES 12

    One of the SUSE devs has a version 4.1 here:

    https://build.opensuse.org/package/b...ository=SLE_12

    I found this in the SLES 12 DVD 1:

    /mnt/suse/noarch/lsb-release-2.0-23.13.noarch.rpm

    I do not suppose that helps, does it? It does not have any 'provides'
    listed, though.
