Application Compatibiliy Whitepaper: Incomplete list for "Core Libs"?
Last modified: 2014-08-04 18:21:52 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm wondering if the "Core Library" list in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
Application Compatibility - https://www.redhat.com/f/pdf/rhel4/AppCompat.pdf -
is quite complete. At least, it seems strange to me that some of the basic
libraries that the ones in the list are built on, have been left out. For
instance, if my application uses gtk, it must be linked with the following libs:
- Those are the libs I get if I take link options from
pkg-config gtk+-2.0 --libs
Now, libgtk-x11 isn't even listed as such in the core lib list, but I'm assuming
it's implicitly included when libgtk is mentioned. The same goes for libgdk vs
libgdk_x11. But of the remaining libs, the following are also missing from Core
So the whitepaper really says that *all* applications using Gtk must bundle
these libs. Surely you don't mean that?
There are also other libs that may need to be reviewed for similar reasons.
Also, I know of no lib called libgdk_pixmap, but I'm assuming libgdk_pixbuf is
actually the one you are referring to.
