Description Simon 2009-06-07 10:44:53 EDT
Description of problem:
The kernel is carrying its own copy of zlib, isn't it?

If yes, this is not allowed for reasons noted here:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Duplication_of_system_libraries

How reproducible:
$ rpm -ql kernel | grep zlib
/lib/modules/2.6.29.3-140.fc11.ppc/kernel/lib/zlib_deflate
/lib/modules/2.6.29.3-140.fc11.ppc/kernel/lib/zlib_deflate/zlib_deflate.ko
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2009-06-08 16:29:47 EDT
The kernel cannot link against shared libraries; it would be an exception to this policy.
