Description attard 2005-06-17 01:28:55 UTC
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): 
mail-notification-1.1-3 and

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -Uvh mail-notification-1.1-3.i386.rpm libicu-3.2-3.i386.rpm
Actual results:
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

Expected results:
Packages install successfully using libstdc++.so.6 available.

Additional info:
Note that libicu was not an available component to file a bug against, hence the
choice of mail-notification.

Comment 1 attard 2005-06-17 02:02:50 UTC
Note also that problem is solved by simply installing libstdc++ alongside the
newer one.

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2005-06-17 02:30:56 UTC
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.

Comment 3 attard 2005-06-18 05:27:18 UTC
I should have checked the compat libraries - it is a cleaner fix than forcing
the install of the old libstdc++.  Thanks.
