multiarch conflicts in sundials
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:10:55 EDT
sundials (or one of its subpacakges) has multiarch conflicts when installed for both i386 and x86_64 in the Fedora development tree. For help in resolving them, see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/MultilibTricks.
file /usr/bin/sundials-config from install of sundials-devel-2.3.0-5.fc8 conflicts with file from package sundials-devel-2.3.0-5.fc8
(Note that this is an automated bug filing.)
It would be nice to have these bugs fixed by the beta of Fedora 9.
I got your auto bug report for sundials-devel. The problem here is that my
package includes a script called 'sundials-config' which is used in a similar
way to pkg-config, except that it is specific to just this package. For example
you might run:
gcc myprogram.c -o myprogram `sundials-config --libs --cppflags`
This sundials-config script needs to have a single filename so that downstream
packages can just run it from the path.
I looked at the MultilibTricks page hopeing to find that I should install the
file in /usr/bin64 in the case of 64 bit packages, and /usr/bin in the case of
32 bit packages. But I didn't see any advice suggesting that. Do 64 bit systems
have a special place for their binaries?
If there's not such thing as /usr/bin64, what would you suggest?
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
