Description Joe Orton 2005-05-09 14:54:44 UTC

1. the actual library files /lib/libmagma*.so.* should be executable

2. libmagma.so should be linked against libraries on which it depends - missing
-lpthread -ldl:

$ ldd -r libmagma.so.1.0.0.pre21
ldd: warning: you do not have execution permission for `./libmagma.so.1.0.0.pre21'
undefined symbol: pthread_rwlock_rdlock (./libmagma.so.1.0.0.pre21)
undefined symbol: pthread_rwlock_unlock (./libmagma.so.1.0.0.pre21)
undefined symbol: dlclose       (./libmagma.so.1.0.0.pre21)
undefined symbol: dlopen        (./libmagma.so.1.0.0.pre21)
undefined symbol: pthread_rwlock_wrlock (./libmagma.so.1.0.0.pre21)
undefined symbol: dlsym (./libmagma.so.1.0.0.pre21)
        linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0x00982000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x003e2000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x003c0000)

3. likewise, libmagmamsg looks like it should be linked against -lmagma:

$ ldd -r libmagmamsg.so.1.0.0.pre21
ldd: warning: you do not have execution permission for
undefined symbol: clist_get_flags       (./libmagmamsg.so.1.0.0.pre21)
undefined symbol: memb_resolve_list     (./libmagmamsg.so.1.0.0.pre21)
undefined symbol: clist_set_purpose     (./libmagmamsg.so.1.0.0.pre21)

4. the "libmagma*.so" symlinks - if these are not needed by some package to
dlopen("libmagma.so"), then they do not need to be in /lib, and do not need to
be in the main package; they should be in %{_libdir} and owned by the -devel package

typical %files patterns to use are, for the main package::

%{_libdir}/*.so.*   [or /lib/*.so.* in this case]

and for the devel package::

[if using libtool, also *.la here]

5. the section 3 man pages:


should be in the -devel package

Comment 1 Chris Feist 2005-05-09 15:51:50 UTC
Thanks, I'll get these modifications in.

Comment 2 Rahul Sundaram 2005-09-05 03:16:33 UTC
Are these modifications in now?

Comment 3 Chris Feist 2005-09-06 16:21:13 UTC
It should be fixed in RHEL4U3.

Comment 4 Chris Feist 2005-11-15 15:57:19 UTC
These fixes should be built in magma-1.0.3-2 and later.
