Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 198130
compat-db-4.2.52-4 does not provide libdb_cxx-4.2.so
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:16:44 EDT
Description of problem:
libdb_cxx-4.2.so is not provided by compat-db. This is required by a number
of legacy packages, including OpenOffice-1.x.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.2.52-4, 4.2.52-2.FC4
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Rebuild compat-db-4.2.52-4 from source RPM.
Actual results: libdb_cxx-4.2.so is not in the "Provides" list.
This is just a placeholder bug-report to include an updated spec file,
attached below, that enables the provision of libdb_cxx-?.?.so during
the build of compat-db-4.2.52-4.src.rpm. Everything else is built as
before without changes. This resolves a dependency for legacy versions
of certain programs, including OpenOffice.org 1.1.3 from FC-3.
Created attachment 132160 [details]
Updated specfile that enables libdb_cxx during build of compat-db
db_cxx libs are now added to compat-db. Thanks!
compat-db-4.2.52-4.fc5 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.
