Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 289131
sysfsutils-devel dependency unchecked
Last modified: 2008-05-19 15:01:15 EDT
Description of problem:
Problem is simple that during the installation of
there is a need to check for the sysfsutils-devel-1.0.2 where as libibverbs tar
ball from the http://openfabrics.org/ does a proper check on -lsysfs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
write a simple C program and include /usr/include/infiniband/verbs.h in the
program and try to compile. you can see this header has an entry with
sysfs/libsysfs.h . But even if the sysfsutils-devel is not installed the
libibverbs-devel gets installed.
Steps to Reproduce:
Additional info: I am try to compile my product GlusterFS and we are a into
parallel filesystem programming for which we wrote ibverbs VAPI transport layer
support but the verbs package not checking for the proper libraries in itself is
making the build go break and additionally tempting us to add sysfsutils-devel
in our rpm spec file which is not required as we never use sysfs functionality.
Please fix this issue as soon as possible thanks.
Earlier versions of libibverbs required sysfsutil-devel, however as of the
latest libibverbs slated for rhel4 update7, this is no longer required. I'm
closing this bug out as the issue was addressed for rhel4 update6, and has been
verified not to be an issue in the upcoming rhel4 update7.
