Summary0000091: swift-lang will not install, due to outdated dependence on binutils-gold
DescriptionOn my Rocky Linux release 8.5 (Green Obsidian), updated via DNF on 2022-05-09, I cannot install the swift-lang package.

It depends on a nonexistent package: binutils-gold. The gold linker has been moved into the regular binutils package, so I think swift-lang should only depend on binutils, not binutils-gold. I circumvented the issue with rpm --nodeps -i, and swift appears to work fine with the regular binutils package.
TagsNo tags attached.

Thank you for the report.

The swift-lang package is not provided nor built by Rocky. In 8, bintuils does not build a separate binutils-gold package. I would report this issue to EPEL at

It appears this has been reported and should be fixed soon in EPEL.
