Description Martin Stransky 2008-09-17 03:28:44 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #460988 +++

This is just a reminder: 
npviewer.bin in the future will need a dynamic link to libcurl of its own arch.  While npviewer.bin itself might not actually use any symbols in libcurl, certain plugins will have the expectation that they be there or they will simply crash.

We will need this in F-8+ and RHEL5+ nspluginwrapper.

NOTE: Adding this actually creates no difference to the installed system since users would already have it installed for other reasons.  This just guarantees that it will work instead of leaving it up to chance.

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
Comment 2 Martin Stransky 2008-10-20 03:20:35 EDT
Honestly it's a problem in flash - firefox and other browsers don't require libcurl so i don't see any reason why nspluginwrapper should demand it just for the one broken plugin. Closing as NOTABUG.
