Description Terje Bless 2003-09-28 07:50:15 EDT
The hpoj package requires(libsnmp.so.5). This is from the "UCD-SNMP
compatibility mode" of NET-SNMP and is required because hpoj links against
"libsnmp.so.5" instead of "libnetsnmp.so.5".

Since UCD-SNMP is no more and this causes conflicts whith third-party packages
(upstream net-snmp RPMs for e.g. RHL9) it would be a good idea to link hpoj
against "libnetsnmp.so.5" instead of "libsnmp.so.5".

The problem may be alleviated by Bug #100489.

This of course goes for anything depending on UCD-SNMP compatibility, but
kernel-utils (Bug #105846) and hpoj were the only ones I found
(`rpm -qa --requires | fgrep libsnmp.so` on an "Everything" install) that had
this problem.

And that's what you get for cut&paste-ing... *sigh*

*This* problem will of course _not_ be alleviated in any way by Bug #100489.
That's only the same issue for the kernel-utils package in Bug #105846.

Will be fixed in the next hpoj build.
