it doesnt provide shared libs,
Last modified: 2009-03-22 22:24:27 EDT
Description of problem:
doesnt provide shared libs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Please update library to ship shared libs too.
This block bug 222042, gdal cannot be builded.
gdal should be buildable with static or share libs.
I don't think it is wise to ship shared libs when upstream
don't, since the soname upstream chose may be different. In other
words, if you want shared libs support in HDF4 you should talk
to upstream and ask them.
I see no idication that gdal cannot be built against statics libs.
ok. workarounded gdal.
new release which seems like support for shared libs is out.
Please have a look here:
Read it all, it's some Fedora hints there.
Two big problems:
- C and Fortran in the same library. Adds a dependency on libgfortran for all users of libdf.
- Install uses rpaths. Very hard to strip out.
Still will wait until these are fixed upstream.
Ok, I see, reopen the bug to watch it?
I'd rather not. It will happen if/when upstream deals with it.
