Description Nathan G. Grennan 2005-02-19 02:15:20 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20050109 Galeon/1.3.19

Description of problem:
I am running a x86_64 system and trying to compile a package that depends on popt. With popt i386 and x86_64 both installed I can't because what should be a seperate -devel isn't. So I have to rpm -e --nodeps popt.i386, compile, and then reinstall popt i386.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ql popt | grep '\.h'

Actual Results:  /usr/include/popt.h

Expected Results:  Nothing

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2005-02-20 13:53:20 EST
I disagree. popt been packaged like this for years and years and years.
Comment 2 Nathan G. Grennan 2005-02-20 14:25:01 EST
So what if it has been that way for years and years. It isn't the
standard way, and at this point it causes a problem with multi-arch
Comment 3 Nathan G. Grennan 2005-02-20 16:00:27 EST
Deleting the /usr/lib/libpopt.la fixes the compiling issue.

Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2005-02-20 23:14:54 EST
Adding libdir=/usr/lib64 to /usr/lib/libpopt.la in the ix86
package is not the right fix for this problem.

Nor is deleting /usr/lib/libpopt.la. The ix86 packages
cannot be maintained at that level of multilib
Comment 5 Nathan G. Grennan 2005-02-21 10:59:50 EST
I posted the diff to point out the difference between the two .la
files. The real fix is to make a -devel of popt, as originally
requested. Hence the two seperate .la files will be not installed at
once without breaking applications that need the 32bit .so file while
others need the 64bit .so file.
Comment 6 Jeff Johnson 2005-02-21 11:51:19 EST
I disagree the need for popt-devel.
Comment 7 Matthew Daniel 2005-04-14 11:59:31 EDT

> I disagree the need for popt-devel.

Then what is the supported way of getting around this issue?
