Re: Can I install a package and restrict its use to only one other package?

I was working at compiling xv-3.10a-28 with its 37 patches when I stumbled across a Suse source rpm "xv-3.10a-1079.src.rpm" at "http://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/";.

Create an empty directory and put "xv-3.10a-1079.src.rpm" in it. Then

rpm2cpio xv-3.10a-1079.src.rpm | cpio --extract

Unpack the "bz2" files. The installation instructions are in "xv-3.10a-jumbo-README.txt".

"libxt-dev" should be installed. "libtiff", "libjpeg", "libpng" and "zlib"
and their "dev" packages are also needed. If this list is incomplete, the
compiler will complain.

There are compiler warnings for "xvpcd.c". If they say something like

pointer targets in passing argument 1 of ‘...' differ in signedness

They can be ignored.
