Hi Evan,

I think it can be done, yes. I will check it out.
We do not have many "Requires:" in the specfile, and I do not see any reason why we should not have them.

Peter, what do you think about it? Do you have any reason not to add "Requires:" fields to core and the modules?

The packaged syslog-ng RPM for RHEL7 from the stable copr repo


fails to have a dependency specified for glib library with a large enough version to satisfy the runtime requirements.

The syslog-ng package has a requirement listed of


but if there is an older glib2 package installed that satisfies this requirement syslog-ng will fail to start with an error

/usr/sbin/syslog-ng: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libsyslog-ng-3.35.so.0: undefined symbol: g_ptr_array_find_with_equal_func

Can the package maintainer add a >= version specification to the requirements so that the install of syslog-ng will automatically update to a version of glib2 that works with syslog-ng?
