I'm having problems building packages locally: they end up depending on
"libsafe.so.1.3" but the RPM database only shows libsafe as providing
"libsafe.so.1" so rpm -Uvh ... fails with a dependency problem.
Is this a problem with RPM or with the libsafe package? I'm really not
The problem is in the libsafe RPM. What I have done to fix kthis is include the
liblink (libsafe.so.1 -> libsafe.so.1.3) in the package itself, instead of
having the link generated automagically when it is loaded. This should make the
problem just "go away".
It's built for the next release and you should be able to download it from
rawhide the next time rawhide is updated.
