Description Need Real Name 2004-12-29 18:39:32 UTC
Description of problem:

Some 3rd party software requires libipvs.a and libipvs.h to build. 
This is built as part of ipvsadm's build process, but the files are
not installed.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. install ipvsadm-1.21-9.ipvs108
2. look for libipvs.a and libipvs.h
3. notice that they are missing
Actual results:

The files are not installed.

Expected results:

The library and header files should either be included in the ipvsadm
package, or they should be installed as a separate -devel package.

Additional info:

Sending to owner of ipvsadm

Comment 3 Lon Hohberger 2005-02-07 22:56:25 UTC
After looking, it's not designed to be installed for general
consumption; it's for internal use of the ipvsadm tool.

There are some problems which will need to be fixed upstream before a
-devel package will be provided, mainly:

- reentrancy/thread-safety issues
- corresponding dynamic library (mostly build related)
