Description Joe Orton 2000-11-20 17:10:14 UTC
The Solaris 8 build failed when building 'dump' in the build directory,
giving the error:

Undefined                       first referenced
 symbol                             in file
stpcpy                              ../rpmio/.libs/librpmio.a(rpmio.o)

Patch for stpcpy problem on Solaris 8

Comment 2 Joe Orton 2000-11-20 17:13:42 UTC
stpcpy was being compiled correctly into librpm.a, but this came 
earlier in the link order than librpmio.a, so it didn't get picked up.
The patch attached moves librpm.a later; not sure if this is correct though.

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2000-12-22 15:09:41 UTC
I understand the problem, but changing the order is not the right approach, as I
the library search order to be linear
	librpmbuild -> librpm -> librpmio -> libpopt [ -> libmisc ]
What's needed is to move the lib/stubs.c code from librpm to librpmio, so that
stpcpy will
end up in librpmio if needed by shared libraries on non-linux platforms.

Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2000-12-30 18:33:47 UTC
Fixed in rpm CVS for both rpm-4.0.[12].
