Comment 5 Alexander Todorov 2008-06-04 07:26:16 UTC
Akira,
in RHEL 5 version of ruby-libs the ext/ directory under docs is missing. I don't
know what are the contents of the conflict files. If they are not necessary I
assume it's safe to remove them (as in RHEL 5). See link in comment #1 for more
hints on multilib packages.

Comment 6 Akira TAGOH 2008-06-04 07:51:07 UTC
Uh, it is. however all of files under ext/dl may be removed then since some of
them are referring to dlconfig.rb. btw MultilibTricks doesn't help in this case,
because this file is generated at the build time according to the build host's
CPU architecture. can't have the kind of #ifdef. another idea is to rename the
filename like dlconfig.rb.ia64 to avoid the file conflict. which looks ugly a bit.

Comment 7 Akira TAGOH 2008-09-26 02:39:59 UTC
To make more clearer, do we still need to fix this issue in ruby package itself, but not rpm?

Comment 8 Alexander Todorov 2008-09-26 06:45:40 UTC
Akira,
although RPM was hacked to not report such type of file conflicts they are still conflicts and fixing the ruby-libs rpm package is the right thing to do.

Comment 9 Akira TAGOH 2008-10-19 08:15:44 UTC
Ok, then devel_ack'd.
