Description Leon Ho 2004-09-07 00:11:19 EDT
Description of problem:
The IMDIR in m4 macro in im-sdk has hardcoded libdir - i.e. /usr/lib
in im-sdk/trunk/acfiles/im_common.m4. Hence when buliding into 64bit
arch, spec file has to do a search and replace hack to replace

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. build one of the LE without the search and replace hack in x86_64
2. look into /usr/lib64/im after make install
Actual results:

Expected results:
libraries should install into /usr/lib64

Additional info:
Low priority but it is great to fix it so that im-sdk.spec and other
spec that rely on those macros won't have to do such hacks.
Comment 1 Yu Shao 2004-09-07 00:36:06 EDT
the spec file hack must have been there from very early stage, anyway
needs to be fixed. 

but if LE is using configure --prefix=%{im_dir}, and in makefile use
things like "libdir = $(prefix)/locale/zh_CN/chinput" LE shouldn't be

FYI, I've fixed im_common.m4 properly in svn yesterday. I mean --with-imdir is
available now. it would be good rather than using IMDIR="${libdir}/iiim",
because there is the case it doesn't work so that libdir is
${exec_prefix}/lib/iiim unless --libdir isn't specified.
For the multilib support, --with-imdir should works perfectly. it will be
available soon for us.
Comment 3 Akira TAGOH 2005-04-04 10:07:30 EDT
should be fixed in 12.1.1-11.svn2435.
Comment 4 Leon Ho 2005-04-07 01:53:08 EDT
Yup. Thank you Tagoh-san.
