Description Göran Uddeborg 2001-07-18 20:27:54 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [sv] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19-7.0.1 i686)

Description of problem:
On a system where openssl-0.9.5a-1 already existed, I installed
openssl095a-0.9.5a-7 from beta 1.  Rpm did not complain about this, and
both packages live side by side.

22:16 uebn> rpm -q --whatprovides libcrypto.so.0

In particular the situation in /usr/lib is a bit confusing:

22:26 uebn> ls -l /usr/lib/libcrypto*
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           18 Sep  9  2000
/usr/lib/libcrypto.so -> libcrypto.so.0.9.5
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           19 Jul 18 22:10
/usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0 -> libcrypto.so.0.9.5a
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root       908558 Apr  1  2000
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root       887109 Jun 25 08:01

I'm not sure if this actually causes any problems when executing programs. 
But I see no point in allowing this, so I would suggest openssl095a to
conflict (in the RPM sense) with openssl < 0.9.6.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Take a system where openssl-0.9.5a is installed, and install

This defect considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2001-08-07 03:57:30 UTC
The ldconfig symlink is normal, and I don't think we've shipped libssl.so.0.9.5
in any of our openssl packages, but adding the conflicts is a good idea --
they'll be in openssl095a-0.9.5a-11 and openssl096-0.9.6-6.  Thanks!
