Description Axel Thimm 2004-12-23 11:28:54 EST
Description of problem:
In multilib/multiarch setups only the native python libdir is owned by
the package. This breaks dependencies like

Requires: /usr/lib/python2.3/...

that could be used inside of noarch packages (like yum).

It is questionable whether the dependency can be rewritten with
python-abi and the like (see #130352), but in any case
/usr/lib/python* should be owned by python even on x86_64.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -qf /usr/lib/python*
Actual results:
file /usr/lib/python2.3 is not owned by any package
file /usr/lib/python2.4 is not owned by any package

Expected results:
Should name the python package

This one should be fixed in python 2.4.1-2 and newer.
