Description Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-05-14 12:20:42 EDT
Despite the egcs-c++ package description, the shared
libstdc++ is included. It ought to be in the libstdc++
package only:

  rpm -qf /usr/lib/libstdc++-2-libc6.1-1-2.9.0.so

  It does include the static standard C++ library and
  C++ header files; the library for dynamically linking
  programs is available separately.

Due to dependencies one cannot remove the libstdc++ package,
but one can remove the egcs-c++ package (*without* --nodeps)
which in turn will remove the shared library and thus breaks
any depending programs:

  rpm -e libstdc++
  error: removing these packages would break dependencies:

  rpm -e egcs-c++
    [/usr/lib/libstdc++-2-libc6.1-1-2.9.0.so now gone]

  kwm: error in loading shared libraries:
  cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Comment 1 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-05-14 13:35:59 EDT
it's an RPM bug that removing one removes the shared file - it's
being worked on.
Comment 2 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-05-14 13:39:59 EDT
fixed in rpm-3.0.1-9, available in today's rawhide.
Comment 3 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-05-14 15:23:59 EDT
*** Bug 2825 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

My solution was to uninstall all tetex* RPMs and reinstall
them.  uninstall complained about not being able to delete
many files.
