I'm creating an RPM package from native Python 2.5 one. Out corporate policy is to use python2.4 by default, so I'm adding a string

Requires: python25

to a .spec file. When I look at created RPM file though, i see the following dependencies:

rpm -qR -p ZSI-2.1_a1-py25.noarch.rpm
/usr/bin/python2.5
python(abi) = 2.5
python25  
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1

Dependency added by me is present, but other dependencies are also here. I'm unable to provide python(abi) = 2.5 dependency, because of dumb python25 package generated by our IT department where provides tag is incorrect.

How do I remove automatically added dependencies from generated RPM?

You can fix it up afterwards with rpmrebuild:

rpmrebuild --package --edit-requires ZSI-2.1_a1-py25.noarch.rpm

You can turn off automatic dependency processing in the .spec with:

AutoReqProv: no
