Description of problem:
rpmlint gives an error for shared libraries that are not linked to libc.so.
While it is true that many/most (commonly/widely used) libraries (in Fedora)
are linked to libc.so, it is not true for all libraries.
Some libraries may not use libc directly so they do not require to
have "NEEDED libc.so".
I feel this should just really be a warning, or at least rpmdiff
should provide info (currently there is none) for this error
to the effect that this is not mandatory.
Is it covered by any Fedora Packaging Guidelines?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmlint ghc-data-default | grep "E: library-not-linked-against-libc"
"E: library-not-linked-against-libc" for libHSdata-default-0.7.1.1-*.so
No error, maybe a warning.
I happened to find an upstream PR which addresses this:
This package has changed maintainer in the Fedora.
Reassigning to the new maintainer of this component.
Fixed in rpmlint-1.11-8.fc33
Thanks Tom, awesome!
