Description Michael Schwendt 2009-02-01 10:58:51 EST
One or more directories are not included within this
package and/or its sub-packages:

=> netcdf-4.0.0-1.fc10.src.rpm
=> netcdf-devel-4.0.0-1.fc10.i386 (rawhide-development-i386)

No other packages provides these either!
Perhaps gcc-gfortran should provide them?


Further information:


MUST: A package must own all directories that it creates. If it does not
create a directory that it uses, then it should require a package which
does create that directory.


The script to find unowned directories is not complete yet, but
still quite usable: http://mschwendt.fedorapeople.org/dircheck-remote.py
$ ./dircheck-remote.py -r rawhide -n ^netcdf

No, since they are needed at runtime. Also libgfortran could have been a the right package if it was required, but it isn't the case, at least for netcdf. I guess that libgfortran is linked statically.

So maybe filesystem is all that remains.

Yeah, s/gcc-gfortran/whatever-pkg-that-provides-fortran-runtime/ ;)
Comment 3 Patrice Dumas 2009-02-02 06:47:23 EST
Hum, excerpts of
# ldd -u -r /usr/lib/libnetcdff.so.4

undefined symbol: nc_inq_atttype        (/usr/lib/libnetcdff.so.4)
undefined symbol: _gfortran_string_trim (/usr/lib/libnetcdff.so.4)

so there are linking issues here, and libgfortran is a therefore a missing dependency.

Ok, when linked dynamically, there is a dependency on libgfortran, but not when linking statically. When linking statically, the dependency is brought in by gcc-gfortran.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
