Description of problem:
Package requires libicu libraries, but libicu-3.2-3 package in extras requires
older version of libstdc++ libraries than available in Fedora Core 4.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -Uvh mail-notification-1.1-3.i386.rpm libicu-3.2-3.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libstdc++.so.5 is needed by libicu-3.2-3.i386
libstdc++.so.5(CXXABI_1.2) is needed by libicu-3.2-3.i386
libstdc++.so.5(GLIBCPP_3.2) is needed by libicu-3.2-3.i386
Packages install successfully using libstdc++.so.6 available.
Note that libicu was not an available component to file a bug against, hence the
choice of mail-notification.
Note also that problem is solved by simply installing libstdc++ alongside the
Your rpm command-line is missing "compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.fc4":
$ rpm -q --whatprovides libstdc++.so.5
According to the libicu changelog, it was built with compat-gcc-32 as a
work-around for a bug and hence links against the older C++ library.
I should have checked the compat libraries - it is a cleaner fix than forcing
the install of the old libstdc++. Thanks.
