Description Ken Cox 2001-09-06 10:16:17 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2smp i686; en-US; 0.7)

Description of problem:
When installing libtermcap, the symbolic link is not created for
libtermcap.so.2.  Any program linked with -l termcap needs libtermcap.so.2

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -i libtermcap-2.0.8-26.rpm
2. rpm -i libtermcap-devel-2.0.8-26.rpm

Actual Results:  There is no libtermcap.so.2

Expected Results:  libtermcap.so.2 should have been created

Additional info:

I have patched the specfile in libtermcap-2.0.8-26-src.rpm to create the
symbolic link upon installation.  When RedHat linux 7.1 is installed on a
normal x86 system, the symlink gets created somewhere else, but is not
created by installing the libtermcap rpm.  I found the problem when
cross-compiling for the ARM platform.

A patch for the specfile is attached to this bug report.

Setting those symlinks is ldconfig's job (and ldconfig is called from %post).
If it doesn't work for your cross-compiler, your cross compilation environment 
is broken (check your ldconfig).
