Description of problem:
The AMD64 distribution does not contain any i386 versions of the
libl.a and libfl.a libraries contained in the package flex.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

2.rpm --redhatprovides /usr/lib/libfl.a
error: file /usr/lib/libfl.a: No such file or directory

3.rpm --redhatprovides /usr/lib64/libfl.a

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-07-01 15:38:42 UTC
What are you building that requires building against flex?

Comment 2 Göran Uddeborg 2004-07-07 17:10:15 UTC
Nothing any more. :-)

We had an old application which did use yywrap from libfl.  When we
started building on x86_64 with i386 as target we encountered this
problem.  But we did some obvious trivial changes so we no longer do
link with -lfl.

It would still be needed to use x86_64 as a compatible development
platform, so I would still argue it is a bug.  But it doesn't have any
high priority any more from our point of view.

Comment 3 dff 2004-10-29 21:52:18 UTC
Closing not a bug per earlier comments, no plans to add 32-bit flex package to
x86-64 RHEL 3 distro at this time.
