Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 102558
libmimelib.so symbolic link is missing from kdenetwork
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:56:56 EDT
Description of problem:
The "kdenetwork" package from Red Hat does not contain the following symbolic
/usr/lib/libmimelib.so -> /usr/lib/libmimelib.so.1
This missing symbolic link causes some programs, like KMess, to fail during
build as they link against libmimelib (using gcc's -lmimelib). During the
build, GNU LD tries to link against /usr/lib/libmimelib.so but since it does
not exist, it fails.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check that the "kdenetwork" package does not install
"/usr/lib/libmimelib.so" file as a symbolic link to "/usr/lib/libmimelib.so.1"
/usr/lib/limemimelib.so does not exist and this causes programs that link
against it to fail.
/usr/lib/libmimelib.so should be included in the kdenetwork package as a
symbolic link to /usr/lib/libmimelib.so.1
it's fixed in 3.1.3-4. thanks for your report.
