Description David Zeuthen 2006-03-16 17:16:49 EST
Description of problem:

Mono stuff needs to be installed into %prefix/lib instead of %libdir - yes, this
sounds odd but this is how mono right now works. See also bug 185690. 

Without this e.g. Banshee from Extras breaks.

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

Rawhide - also applicable to FC5
Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2006-03-16 17:48:35 EST
Thanks, David - fixed with avahi-0.6.9-6, now built into rawhide.
Comment 2 David Zeuthen 2006-03-17 11:19:44 EST
Thanks Jason - did you send the patch upstream? It probably should be upstream
as bug 185690 now seems to indicate that upstream mono indeed uses %prefix/lib
instead of %libdir
Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2006-03-20 22:31:08 EST
avahi-0.6.9-6 has been pushed for FC5, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
Comment 4 Andy Kwong 2006-05-01 10:39:51 EDT
pkg-config is returning /usr/lib64 in the linker flags for package
"avahi-sharp". This is due to the libdir being still set to /usr/lib64 in the
following file.


The problem is that when we are compiling applications that uses avahi-sharp
(such as the banshee rpm), the build process fails as it is trying to use

Settins the libdir back to /usr/lib in the above file allows for banshee to be
built correctly.
Comment 5 Ilya Konstantinov 2006-09-18 08:29:29 EDT
The Banshee x86-64 RPM found in Rawhide looks for avahi-sharp.dll in lib64. I
didn't build it myself, so I don't know what it looks for at build time.
However, once built, its run with the 64-bit Mono runtime, which expects to find
its DLLs in lib64. I don't think that banshee.exe itself has any preference for
lib vs. lib64; it simply requests "avahi-sharp" from the runtime.
Comment 6 Michel Alexandre Salim 2006-11-01 19:51:34 EST
Yes. The 0.10.12 version in FE6 somehow works despite avahi being installed in
/usr/lib, but the 0.11.2 version I compiled from source would fail in trying to
load avahi unless I symlink /usr/lib/mono/gac/avahi-sharp to
Comment 7 Dan Berger 2006-11-24 11:33:48 EST
For what it's worth, the current shipping avahi-sharp RPM and the current
shipping banshee RPM for FC6 x86_64 don't play nice together.

Rebuilding from spec and commenting out the following lines solves the problem,
but may be the "Wrong Thing (tm)".

# Fix avahi-sharp default installation into /usr/lib64 on x86_64:
if [ ! -e $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/%{_prefix}/lib/mono ] && \
   [ -e  $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/%{_libdir}/mono ]; then
   mv -f $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/%{_libdir}/mono $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/%{_prefix}/lib; 
Comment 8 Toshio Kuratomi 2006-12-19 13:38:37 EST
If you read the ending of Bug #185690 the placement of mono's gac changed
towards the end of FC6's development cycle.  So avahi's original behaviour --
placing the mono assemblies in %{_libdir} is correct for FC6+.

Will attach a patch to fix this.

Revert changing the mono directory to /usr/lib

Reverts cvs changes 1.46-1.49, 0.6.9-6: Move mono assemblies from %{_libdir} to
/usr/lib in the spec file.

Reverts half of cvs change 1.53, 0.6.9-9.FC6: patching the pkgconfig file to
use /usr/lib instead of %{_libdir} (The other half of this was removed earlier
as it was upstreamed.)
Comment 10 Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-02-20 14:46:42 EST
This bug should probably be closed -- avahi now installs in %{libdir} and
Banshee 0.11.x builds against it fine (in Rawhide)
Comment 11 Paul Howarth 2007-02-20 16:03:32 EST
It's still broken in FC6, despite more than one update having been issued since
the bug was raised...
Comment 12 Martin Bacovsky 2007-04-11 06:44:15 EDT
Finally this issue should be fixed in fc6 in avahi-sharp-0.6.16-4.fc6
