Why does `rpm-build` ignore `GLIBC_PRIVATE` while making `Provides` section for `glibc` but does not ignore while making `Requires`?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Facing some problems while building an rpm file from source and spec file.
  • Internally binary which is part of rpm uses symbols from GLIBC_PRIVATE which causes situation that package contains dependency to ld-linux-x86-64.so.2(GLIBC_PRIVATE)(64bit) in Requires rpm field.
  • Why does rpm-build ignore GLIBC_PRIVATE while making Provides section for glibc but does not ignore while making Requires ?
  • Is there some solution to ignore GLIBC_PRIVATE other than AutoReqProv: no since rpm contains much more binaries.
