package_rpm.bbclass: correctly map RRECOMMENDS and RSUGGESTS to rpm tags
Previously they were swapped, not sure why. Their meaning, as far as rpm world goes, is different: - Recommends is a soft dependency and will be installed by default; there is an option not to do that. - Suggests is a suggestion to be picked up and presented to end user by package management tools; it has no special meaning otherwise. OE packages use RRECOMMENDS, which should be mapped to Recommends rpm tag, so that the packages will be picked up as dependencies. Signed-off-by: Alexander Kanavin <>
