Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 138023
32-bit gtk2-devel does not exist on ia64 platform
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:04 EST
Description of problem:
32-bit versions of 'gtk2-devel' do not exist, only 64-bit.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check the ISO install image for the platform and see it not there.
This makes users unable to use Mozilla's firefox, as it looks for
We do not do multilib -devel packages, since they are by definition
only needed for development. If firefox really needs gtk2-devel
something is wrong.
Ah, that's understandable. But I /did/ notice some lib packages that
were build for x86_64 *and* i386. Why is that?
When firefox was run, it complained that it needed
`libgtk-x11-2.0.so'. A quick check showed that it existed in
`/usr/lib64', but not `/usr/lib'. A quick check showed that those
libraries were found in the "gtk2-devel" package.
firefox should be happy with libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 which is included in
the gtk2 package
If not NOTABUG, this must be a firefox issue
This bug is confusing. Why is it reported against RHEL3? firefox is
not a supported component of RHEL3.
Bug reporter mentions i386 and x86_64, but Summary indicates that this
is an ia64 problem?
Unless Jerry can explain the issue better, this should be closed NOTABUG.
Due to lack of reply in almost two months, closing this NOTABUG as per comment #5.
