Description of problem:

It's impossible to install compat-libstdc++-296-2.96-138 without breaking
aim. Here is what happens:

[root@lembas zaitcev]# rpm -U compat-libstdc++-296-2.96-138.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install official AOL Instant Messenger client from AIM.com
2. Run "yum update" on Rawhide
   Yum breaks when checking dependencies (thanks! could be worse!)
Actual results:

Updating to current Rawhide with yum is impossible, which is good.
If it were possible, aim would break.

Expected results:

Update proceeding and aim working.

Additional info:

I dunno, it may be a bug in AIM RPM to select a library by name,
or perhaps a bug in the way aim excutable was linked. But this thing
worked since RHL-9 (IIRC). Isn't the idea of compat packages
to preserve compatibility? I think something is broken here.

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2006-09-02 06:37:48 UTC
The egcs 1.1.2 compatibility libstdc++ was removed on purpose, we don't
provide eternal compatibility with everything.
egcs 1.1.2 was released in March 1999 and last included in RHL 6.2.
That's a lot of years AOL had time to update their stuff to something

Comment 2 Pete Zaitcev 2006-09-02 18:00:45 UTC
OK, never mind. I thought it was a compatibility layer for gcc 2.96,
not egcs 1.1.2.
