Description Bill Nottingham 2006-09-05 10:25:36 EDT
Description of problem:

        file /usr/lib/libpfm.a from install of libpfm-devel-3.2-0.060621.8.1
conflicts with file from package libpfm-devel-3.2-0.060621.8.1

Shouldn't that be somewhere else on x86-64?
Comment 1 William Cohen 2006-09-18 14:57:52 EDT
You should only install one libpfm on the machine. You wouldn't be using a
32-bit libpfm on a 64-bit machine.

The 64bit version of the software should be installing the libraries in the
/usr/lib64 to be consistent with other packages.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-09-18 15:01:29 EDT
Both are installed for development purposes.
Comment 3 William Cohen 2006-09-19 16:02:15 EDT
Took a closer look at what is going on with libpfm. libpfm has a file config.mk
included into the Makefile. The config.mk has the following line that hardcodes
the directory:


Have workaround in the libpfm.spec for 3.2-0.060621.10 to move the libraries
into the correct place.
