Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-03-08 22:41:43 UTC
Description of problem:

$ rpm -V hal-0.5.0-2.i386
Unsatisfied dependencies for hal-0.5.0-2.i386: libhal.so.0
$ rpm -qR hal-0.5.0-2.i386

and hal-0.5.0-2.i386 provides only /usr/lib/libhal.so.1.
A resulting mess is rather difficult to untangle and requires
quite a bit of a manual intervention.

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

How reproducible:
With hal-0.5.0-2.i386 only but, unfortunately, this is used
on x86_64 too.

Comment 1 David Zeuthen 2005-03-09 15:40:24 UTC
This is now fixed in Rawhide - my guess is that it's a libtool of some
sort (it picked up the libhal.so.0 dep from the buildroot) since I've
seen this with other packages.

Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2005-03-09 16:47:56 UTC
I agree that this is prolly something in libtool and force-installing
required pieces followed by a rebuild most likely fixes the problem
locally.  But the same trouble shows in other places too (see,
for example, bug #150155) which probably means that the same issue
will haunt you in release updates as well.

Interestingly enough I did not see that to happen yet with x86_64
packages (which have _other_ libtool gotchas).  So what is different
and where this should be re-filed?  Mending particular occurences does
not seem like a good answer.

Comment 3 David Zeuthen 2005-03-09 16:56:24 UTC
Yeah, it's something with libtool but all the auto*/libtool magic
sometimes escape me. It would be good to make a test case and file it
against libtool to fix the once and for all.

Btw, for updates in stable release that including bumping of sonames
(which is rare since it means ABI breakage) this will probably be
caught by QA'ing the package. 

It would be good to fix this nonetheless.
