Description Alexandre Oliva 2006-02-10 11:03:28 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/20060207 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
The dynamic library installed by tix is missing an explicit SONAME specification.  This implies programs linked with -ltix will get libtix.so into their DT_NEEDED (this is the case of tkinter on x86_64, but oddly not on i386).  Since nothing provides libtix.so, rpm refuses to install tkinter on x86_64, even though the symlink is right there.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.gcc whatever.c -ltix
2.readelf -d a.out | grep tix

Actual Results:   0x0000000000000001 (NEEDED)             Shared library: [libtix.so]

Expected Results:   0x0000000000000001 (NEEDED)             Shared library: [libTix8.4.so]

Corrected in rawhide.  The new package will be tix-8.4.0-3 and it should be in
tomorrow's tree build.
