Hi all.

I'm quite new to building rpms.

I’m trying to build an rpm for lightsquid . I have got the rpm to build without any issues but now when I try and install it, it dies with missing dependencies the files are in the install list.

[root at gregory-workstation ~]# rpm -i /home/builder/rpm/RPMS/noarch/lightsquid-1.7-1.noarch.rpm

error: Failed dependencies:

                perl(common.pl) is needed by lightsquid-1.7-1.noarch

                perl(lightsquid.cfg) is needed by lightsquid-1.7-1.noarch

[root at gregory-workstation ~]#

I have also used mc to browse the contents on the rpm and the files are in it.. so why do I get this error ?
I have also removed the "Requires" reference from the spec file and this did not help.
I have attacked my lightsquid.spec file for review maybe a guru will see what my green eyes have missed.
