let say that we have a collection of the same software A available in various version that are already packaged and available thru rpm, thank's fpm ;-)
and we want ot hav a dummy packag that only relies on a specified version, thus will force the installation of the required version of A.
eg we have a collection of rpm that follow this naming scheme
and so on....
we would like to create a rpm let say named "default-A" that will only depends on gensoft-A version x
using rpmbuild we are abble to do the following
using this specfile
Summary: gensoft's default A
License: Dummy License
install default gensoft A package.
rpmbuild -bb specfile
is there a way to achieve the same using fpm ?
the goal is to provide our user the possibility to install as much versions of A they want and to have a default version that when installed will install gensoft-A-1.0 for example.
