Description jeroen 2005-06-09 15:27:44 EDT
The current popt rpm in rawhide installs /usr/lib/libpopt.la. This is bad
(screws up building GNOME since building on x86_64 and the existence of
libpopt.la will make stuff try to link against /usr/lib/libpopt.so instead of

This applies to both the i386 as well as the x86_64 rpms.

$rpm -q popt
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2005-08-26 22:20:07 EDT
Yes, the popt.i386 package installs into /usr/lib. Install popt.x86_64:

$ rpm -qlvp popt-1.10.2-3.x86_64.rpm
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root            44912 Jul 27 08:15 /usr/lib64/libpopt.a
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root    root              788 Jul 27 08:15 /usr/lib64/libpopt.la
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root    root               16 Jul 27 08:15 /usr/lib64/libpopt.so
