Description Paul Jakma 2003-08-19 20:54:56 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030131

Description of problem:
the tcp_wrappers package installs its dynamic libraries to /usr/lib:

[root@fogarty root]# rpm -ql tcp_wrappers | grep lib

This is a problem as important applications installed to /bin,/sbin may link to
it. In particular portmap, which creates problems for systems which have /usr as
an NFS partition.

Please note I will also file a bug for portmap. But I think resolution should be
that libwrap is install to /lib.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ql tcp_wrappers

Additional info:
Comment 1 Florian La Roche 2003-08-25 04:31:59 EDT
portmap is changed to statically link to -lwrap and I don't know of any other
service in /sbin or /bin that is left with a dependency to /usr.

Thanks for your bug-report,

Florian La Roche
