Description Vladimir Ivanovic 2003-08-28 02:05:54 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030131

Description of problem:
Although the rpm package shows a link as part of the package (downloaded with

   $ rpm -qvlp /var/spool/up2date/postgresql-libs-7.3.2-3.i386.rpm

   lrwxrwxrwx    1 root    root               10 Feb 15  2003 \    
   /usr/lib/libpq.so.2.0 -> libpq.so.2

no such link is created. Programs that expect libpq.so.2 to exist fail to run.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e --nodeps postgresql-libs
2. up2date -d postgresql-libs
3. rpm -qvlp /var/spool/up2date/postgresql-libs*.rpm
4. rpm -Uvh /var/spool/up2date/postgresql-libs*.rpm
5. Run a program that requires libpq.so.2 (e.g. my build of XEmacs)

Actual Results:  Program does not run because it cannot find libpq.so.2.

Expected Results:  The world's finest editor, nay, an operating system desguised
as an editor, proudly displaying it's startup screen.

Additional info:

   cd /usr/lib
   ln -s libpq.so.3 libpq.so.2

fixes the problem.

Comment 1 Andrew Overholt 2003-08-28 13:00:45 UTC
Fixed in rawhide.  If you need libpq.so.2 functionality, please install
postgresql72-libs (see Bug #97391 ... the initial one mistakenly didn't have ssl
support (among other things)).  Closing.
