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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ql tcp_wrappers
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,
