Description Konstantin Olchanski 2005-04-08 19:31:38 EDT
Description of problem:

We use an AMD64 machine running 64-bit Fedora 3 to build 32-bit-compatible
executables and we are missing the 32-bit /usr/lib/libreadline.a and .so. The
installed rpm is readline-devel-4.3-13. A short term workaround is to copy
/usr/lib/libreadline.a from a 32-bit FC3 machine. (See also bug 106882, thanks
for fixing that).

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2005-04-11 04:13:35 EDT

shows an i386 readline package, ready to install.  If 'rpm -q readline' only
shows one, you need to install the i386 package too.
Comment 2 Konstantin Olchanski 2005-04-18 20:44:43 EDT
Sorry, you gave the wrong answer (the "readline" package does not contain

Here is the correct answer: /usr/lib/libreadline.a is in the i386
"readline-devel" rpm and this rpm installs cleanly on amd64 FC3.

In our environment, where we mostly build 32-bit binaries, we would prefer to
have all 32-bit development libraries installed by the "install everything"
install method.

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2005-04-19 06:34:31 EDT
(Multilib devel packages.)
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2005-04-19 11:17:16 EDT
32-bit development libraries conflict in many cases. That's why only a small set
(the LSB set, generally) is included.
