Re: [scl.org] rh-python36 SPEC file question (circular dependency)



I had actually attempted to do just that, and ran into another
interesting problem.  When I install rh-python36-python-devel package,
it breaks the RPM database in some way.  With that package installed,
every time I do anything with RPM, I get several instances of this
error message:  "error: Macro % has illegal name (%define)"

This error does not interfere with the ability of RPM to install or
remove packages.  However, as part of the rpmbuild process,
dependencies of RPM packages are checked.  When this occurs, some
program spits out several instances of that error message, and the
program returns with an error.  RPMBUILD then aborts the build when it
detects the error.

I know the error is a bash shell error, but I have not yet determined
what in the -devel package is broken in such a way to cause that error
to occur whenever RPM is run.
