Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2007-06-27 22:05:55 EDT
Is a compat-vips package really necessary.  Every package I see that requires
either of the libraries provided by the vips package seems to have exactly the
same version string:

vips-devel-0:7.12.0-1.fc8.i386
vips-tools-0:7.12.0-1.fc8.i386
vips-python-0:7.12.0-1.fc8.i386
nip2-0:7.12.0-1.fc8.i386
vips-0:7.12.0-1.fc8.i386

BTW, I note the following from rpmlint:
W: compat-vips unused-direct-shlib-dependency /usr/lib64/libvips.so.10.8.5
/usr/lib64/libWand.so.10
W: compat-vips unused-direct-shlib-dependency /usr/lib64/libvips.so.10.8.5
/lib64/libz.so.1
W: compat-vips unused-direct-shlib-dependency /usr/lib64/libvips.so.10.8.5
/lib64/librt.so.1
W: compat-vips unused-direct-shlib-dependency /usr/lib64/libvips.so.10.8.5
/lib64/libdl.so.2
These are generally just inefficiencies, but libWand is 800K, which is a bit
large for an unused library dependency.
Comment 2 Adam Goode 2007-06-27 22:09:00 EDT
Ah, ok. Good to know this isn't necessary. I was thinking this package was only
needed for F7, but with F8 coming out so soon, I'll drop it.

Also, I'll look into the dependences. I guess it's just libtool being overzealous?
