Description Patrice Guay 2005-10-31 16:58:51 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; fr-FR; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050919 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
When compiling OpenIPMI-1.4.14-1.4E.7 on x86_64 architecture, compilation fails with this message:
gcc: /usr/lib/libnetsnmp.so: No such file or directory

It is looking for libnetsnmp.so in /usr/lib instead of /usr/lib64.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -Uvh http://updates.redhat.com/enterprise/4AS/en/os/SRPMS/OpenIPMI-1.4.14-1.4E.7.src.rpm
2. cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
3. rpmbuild -ba OpenIPMI.spec

Actual Results:  Compilation fails with message:
gcc -Wall -I../include -DIPMI_CHECK_LOCKS -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib64/glib-2.0/include -O2 -g -pipe -m64 -o .libs/ipmish ipmish.o  ./.libs/libOpenIPMIcmdlang.so /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/OpenIPMI-1.4.14/lib/.libs/libOpenIPMI.so ../utils/.libs/libOpenIPMIutils.so ../lib/.libs/libOpenIPMI.so -lm ../unix/.libs/libOpenIPMIposix.so /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/OpenIPMI-1.4.14/utils/.libs/libOpenIPMIutils.so /usr/lib/libnetsnmp.so -lcrypto ../glib/.libs/libOpenIPMIglib.so -lgdbm -pthread -lgthread-2.0 -lglib-2.0 -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/lib64

make[1]: *** [ipmish] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/OpenIPMI-1.4.14/cmdlang'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

Expected Results:  Compilation should have completed without error.

Comment 1 Phil Knirsch 2005-11-07 14:15:03 UTC
That is a problem with libtool picking up the 32bit development library if the
net-snmp-devel i386 package has been installed.

To resolve this problem remove the net-snmp-devel.i386 package using:

rpm -e net-snmp-devel.i386

on a command line.

I'm quite sure this would work. However, my concern is why do I have to do this?
Is there a way to fix libtool instead?


Comment 3 Phil Knirsch 2005-11-07 14:37:01 UTC
The problem is that libtool never was really properly designed to be used for
development on multilib platforms.

So fixing it would probably require quite a bit of work how libtool selects and
finds libraries for those cases.

Additionally, most packages come with their own copy of libtool in order to have
a know working one with that specific package, so fixing libtool itself might
work for some packages that use the system libtool but not for quite a few others.

Read ya, Phil
