Building evolution-data-server srpm creates dependancy on installed libebook.so
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:48 EST
Description of problem:
When rebuilding the evolution-data-server srpm, the resultant binary
rpm ends up depending on the libebook.so from an existing
evolution-data-server package. In my case, I was building the rpm
having an older version of evolution-data-server already installed
which provided libebook.so.7. Version 0.0.99 of the package, however,
provides libebook.so.8, and thus rpm reported a missing dependancy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. With evolution-data-server-0.0.94 already installed, rebuild the
2. Attempt to install evolution-data-server-0.0.99 binary rpm, using

Thanks... I've seen something like this before, last time it happened
to me was with libgal2.
I believe a stray -L/usr/lib is making its way into the link line,
possibly via a -rpath in the Makefile.in ?
This means that if you have the older e-d-s-devel package installed,
it links against the installed so files, rather than the newly built
ones. The easy workaround is to uninstall e-d-s-devel before
I suspect there's a subtle bug in libtool, but it may be a separate
problem with the e-d-s configure.in and Makefile.am files.
Adding dreed to cc in the hope he can comment further.
Changing component to "libtool" for now
