Description of problem:
Some third-party rpm's require "/usr/lib/libodbcinst.so" and will fail
to install for the reason of failed dependencies, because
"/usr/lib/libodbcinst.so is missing. A symbolic link from
/usr/lib/libodbcinst.so.1.0.0 to "/usr/lib/libodbcinst.so" would
resolve the dependencies.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install unixODBC
Actually, the symlink does exist, but for some reason it's in the
unixODBC-devel package not the main unixODBC package. This seems
weird to me too; I am making inquiries to try to find out why it was
done that way.
The consensus seems to be that this is the intended packaging setup
--- the unversioned .so symlink is supposed to be where it is. So the
problem is with the third-party RPMs. They should be depending on a
versioned .so name.
