*.la files in MinGW packages report "script-without-shebang"
Last modified: 2009-09-09 11:41:51 EDT
MinGW package guidelines were approved recently:
MinGW packages may contain *.la (libtool linker scripts),
contrary to the normal practice for Fedora packages. This
is because they are required for libtool to be able to link
rpmlint gives a rather unexpected error here. As an example:
mingw32-libjpeg.noarch: E: script-without-shebang /usr/i686-pc-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/lib/libjpeg.la
(Libtool also installs these files as 0755 - whether this
is required or not I am not sure, it may be a bug in libtool
or there may be some reason behind it).
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Closing - rpmlint no longer reports this as a problem.
