Description Laurent Rineau 2007-01-25 11:23:38 EST
Description of problem:
kickpim is a kicker applet. However, it installs a .so and a .la 
in %{_libdir}. Was is more, the name of the library is not standard.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kickpim-0.5.3-9.fc5.3, kickpim-0.5.3-10 from devel too.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kickpim from FE repo.
2. rpm -ql kickpim | grep lib
  
Actual results:
/usr/lib/libkickpim.la
/usr/lib/libkickpim.so


Expected results:
/usr/lib/kde3/kickpim_panelapplet.la
/usr/lib/kde3/kickpim_panelapplet.so


Note: the spec file have macros that call "rpm -q" during the build.
  1/ This package will have difficulties to pass the mass review process at 
FUDcon.
  2/ I am surprised that the Fedora build system allows such a thing.

Forget that note. I was not reading the actual spec file. :-(

libkickpim.la, libkickpim.so are loadable modules, not shared libraries, 
similar to the libkdeinit_*.so modules in koffice.

Agreed, it *should* be using something better along the lines of what you 
suggested, but I'd argue that's a relatively minor issue to be taken upstream, 
not particularly interesting/relevant to fedora's packaging of it.

I know. That's why it SHOULD (not MUST) be in %{_libdir}/kde3/ like other 
kicker applet modules.

Upstream seems dead: no release since 2004, whereas it has 18 open bugs and 28 
open RFE in the Sourceforge tracker. I have remove kickpim from my system.
