Description Henrik Nordström 2011-09-13 09:56:31 UTC
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install arts
2. ls /usr/lib[64]/*.la
Actual results:

Several .la files installed all belonging to arts

Expected results:

No .la files found

Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2011-09-13 15:08:17 UTC
This is KDE 3 stuff, it requires .la files for plugins loaded at runtime.

Comment 2 Henrik Nordström 2011-09-13 19:29:41 UTC
A comment in the %files section in the spec to why the package deviates from packaging guidelines would be helpful.
