Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 219905
libtiff static libraries not present after install libtiff-devel on FC6
Last modified: 2013-07-02 23:11:27 EDT
Description of problem:
libtiff-devel deploys neither static library libtiff.a nor libtiffxx.a
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time (uninstalling/reinstalling libtiff-devel doesn't cure problem)
Problem occurs on both i386 and x86_64 systems.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install libtiff-devel
After successful install, examination of /usr/lib (on i386 and x86_64) shows no
libtiff.a nor libtiffxx.a present, and examination of /usr/lib64 on x86_64
systems show no libtiff.a nor libtiffxx.a present.
libtiff.a and libtiffxx.a present in both the aforementioned areas.
Temporary workaround is to download correct version libtiff sources from
libtiff.org, build 32 bits under FC6, and to copy the libtiff.a and libtiffxx.a
elements built into the /usr/lib directory; then clean/build 64 bit (under
x86_64) and copy the .a's into /usr/lib64 directory.
The standard configured build provided by libtiff.org builds the .a files.
libtiff-static package created as of current F7 testing release, if that helps you any.
Thank you for the fc7 information. I'm about to install it on an x86-64 system
