Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 413901
Link from libidn.so to libidn.so.11.4.6 missing
Last modified: 2007-12-12 04:12:17 EST
Description of problem:
I'm not really sure if this is a bug or intended to be as it is: The problem
is that when doing a complete installation of RHEL4, both libidn for 32- and
for 64-Bit get installed. The libidn-devel package instead is only installed
for 64Bit (on a 64Bit Machine) which results in the fact that a link from
libidn.so to libidn.so.11.4.6 is available in /usr/lib64 but not in /usr/lib.
Can I savely install the 32-Bit package as well? Up to now I've only seen that
there are identical files in the two libidn-devel packages but I haven't
checked if they differ.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The biarch development environment is only supported from RHEL 5 onwards, sorry.
libidn-devel happens to be a package which isn't biarch-safe; in RHEL 4, you can
only install either libidn-devel.i386 *or* libidn-devel.x86_64, but not both
