Fedora Packages


Generate fake (S)RPM

A tool to generate an (s)rpm with faked provides. It may be useful when you install some library/module/application manually - without having an RPM package. E.g., when you pip install somepackage And when some RPM package `Requires: python-somepackage` then /usr/bin/rpm refuses to install such package, because `python-somepackage` is not present on your system. RPMDB does not know what you know. So you can run: create-fake-rpm --build python-somepackage python3dist(somepackage) This create package `fake-python-somepackage-0-0.noarch.rpm` which provides: "python-somepackage" and "python3dist(somepackage)". You can install it using: dnf install fake-python-somepackage-0-0.noarch.rpm
