Description Rob Crittenden 2007-02-13 16:32:22 EST
net-snmp config returns -L/usr/lib/lib for some of the compile and link options.

Not a show-stopper in itself but it may point to a deeper problem.

$ net-snmp-config --external-libs
-lcrypto -lm -L/usr/lib/lib -lwrap

I assume it should be -L/usr/lib and not -L/usr/lib/lib

$ net-snmp-config --agent-libs
-L/usr/lib -lnetsnmpmibs -lnetsnmpagent -lnetsnmphelpers -lnetsnmp -ldl -lz
-lcrypto -lm -lsensors -L/usr/lib/lib -lwrap -Wl,-E
-Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/CORE -L/usr/local/lib
-L/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/CORE -lperl -lresolv -lnsl -ldl
-lm -lcrypt -lutil -lpthread -lc

Also includes -L/usr/lib/lib
Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2007-02-14 16:06:16 EST
--agent-libs also includes -lsensors, so net-snmp-devel should pull in
lm_sensors-devel on appropriate architectures, some more discussion in bug 228555
Comment 2 Rob Crittenden 2007-02-27 09:32:56 EST
This isn't about lm_sensors or FDS. 

This is about a package setting a link search directory to a (likely)
non-existent location, /usr/lib/lib. While this is a seemingly minor thing it
may point to a deeper issue with the RPM.
Comment 3 Radek Vokal 2007-02-27 10:09:04 EST
ehm, have you even checked the latest net-snmp package? I guess not. 

./net-snmp-config --external-libs
-lcrypto -lm -lcrypto -L/usr/lib -lwrap

Comment 4 Rob Crittenden 2007-02-27 10:37:46 EST
I assume that by latest you mean the version in devel/FC7. In fact no, I didn't,
why would I? This is filed against FC6 where the bug still exists.

To be more precise, this is net-snmp-devel-5.3.1-12.fc6. This seems to be the
most recent version for FC6, at least according to

And please drop the attitude. Don't discourage people from submitting bugs by
being rude.

"It is fixed in devel/FC7 and we are not backporting" is an acceptable answer.
