RPM failed dependencies

I'm trying to package the latest Oracle JDK (1.7.0_51) into an RPM. Packaging works fine but when i try to install via rpm -Uvh xxx.rpm, i get the following:
#sudo rpm -ivh Sun_JDK7-1.7.0-51.x86_64.rpm 
error: Failed dependencies:

now if i include AuthReqProv:no in my spec file, i don't run into this issue when installing. the other workaround is that i just install with the --nodeps option.

not sure why this is happening or if it is an issue. how does a package build properly but not install properly? is it worse to set AuthReqProv:no during the rpm build or not to set it and install the rpm with --nodeps?

any ideas on how to resolve these dependencies?

thanks in advance

When you built the RPM did you specify the dependencies in the .spec file?

no, i did not. this seems to be rpm trying to resolve shared lib dependencies on its own.

You'll need to add some 'Requires:' lines, just before the %description (atm on Windows, so shoot me for incorrect namings):

In the like of:

Requires:  PACKAGE_that_provies_libavcodec.so.52

To figure out which package provides that libavcodec, try:
yum provides *libavcodec.so.52*

Hope this helps
