Description Carlos O'Donell 2015-06-03 16:08:52 UTC
The rtkaio libraries are now obsolete.

Applications should be using libaio.so.

The librt.so API is shared between rtkaio and the traditional POSIX rt libraries, so there is no ABI/API breakage, one can use librt as normal but it will not take advantage of Kernel AIO (KAIO).

We are not providing a compatibility symlink e.g. /lib64/rtkaio/librt.so.1|librtkaio-X.Y.so.

Comment 1 Jan Kurik 2015-07-15 14:03:48 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 23 development cycle.
Changing version to '23'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 23 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 23 End Of Life. Thank you.)
