Description Robert Scheck 2004-10-13 08:58:33 EDT
Description of problem:
libidn doesn't provide /usr/lib/libidn.so, which causes an error at 
compiling time of some programs:

g++: /usr/lib/libidn.so: No such file or directory

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

How reproducible:
Everytime, see below.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to rebuild the instant messenger SIM-ICQ, but I think, this 
   problem isn't bound to SIM directly.
2. Die with: "g++: /usr/lib/libidn.so: No such file or directory"

Actual results:
No /usr/lib/libidn.so

Expected results:

Comment 1 Joe Orton 2004-10-13 09:09:35 EDT
I'm not sure what bug you are reporting here.

Are you trying to link against a 64-bit or 32-bit libidn?  You need to
install the libidn-devel package only for the correct architecture. 
Each libidn-devel package includes a %{_libdir}/libidn.so symlink. 
You probably can't install both without conflicts.
Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2004-10-13 09:12:25 EDT
Hm, the only thing I did was a full installation of FC3t3 + upgrade to 
Development, maybe this is my problem...
Comment 3 Robert Scheck 2004-10-13 10:41:12 EDT
A couple of applications every time falled back to 32-bit libidn at 
compiling time, that was the problem...sorry :-(
