Move libpulsecore.so* to /usr/lib(64)/pulseaudio/ to prevent being considered for multilib
Last modified: 2013-01-09 21:41:51 EST
In order to satisfy runtime multilib setups we tag anything that drops a library
file in (/usr/)lib(64)/ as being multilib. pulseaudio currently drops a library
in /usr/lib64/libpulse.so.0.3.0 for example. If this library (which I'm told is
purely for internal pulseaudio use) is moved to libdir/pulseaudio/ it would
avoid being tagged for multilib and we would resolve the current conflicts we have.
As discussed on IRC, moving libpulsecore to some private directory doesn't
really work because the library is then no longer found by the dynamic loader.
This could be worked around by -rpath or /etc/ld.so.conf/, both of which are not
allowed on other distributions, and I'd be very unhappy if I'd have to ship PA
with different build systems for Fedora and the rest.
Instead I now split off libpulsecore into its own package pulseaudio-core-libs,
which should fix the problem, too.
