Description Marcelo E. Geyer 2009-11-26 12:45:30 UTC
There is no library or symbolic link libxmlsec1-openssl.so essential for some applications. Creating a symbolic link to / usr/lib/libxmlsec1-openssl.so.1 solve the problem, it might be available in the next updates.

Comment 1 Daniel Veillard 2009-11-27 09:41:39 UTC
Out of curiosity, what is it essential for ? What is using it ?


Comment 2 Marcelo E. Geyer 2009-11-27 11:18:07 UTC
I do not think I expressed myself correctly, mean that some programs may require this library. We have developed a business management software in Brazil that uses this library, but I've seen other applications that also made use of this library, just do not remember.

xmlsec1 command line tool shipped in xmlsec1 package. ;)

libxmlsec1-<crypto>.so symlink is provided by xmlsec1-<crypto>-devel packages, but they should not be required for xmlsec1 to work, right?

$ rpm -qa 'xmlsec1*'

$ ls -l /usr/lib64/libxmlsec1* | sed 's,^.*/usr/,/usr/,'
/usr/lib64/libxmlsec1-gnutls.so.1 -> libxmlsec1-gnutls.so.1.2.12
/usr/lib64/libxmlsec1-nss.so.1 -> libxmlsec1-nss.so.1.2.12
/usr/lib64/libxmlsec1-openssl.so.1 -> libxmlsec1-openssl.so.1.2.12
/usr/lib64/libxmlsec1.so.1 -> libxmlsec1.so.1.2.12

  /usr/bin/xmlsec1 --verify --crypto <crypto> /dev/null

results in:

Error: unable to load xmlsec-<crypto> library. Make sure that you have
this it installed, check shared libraries path (LD_LIBRARY_PATH)
envornment variable or use "--crypto" option to specify different
crypto engine.

For <crypto> openssl, nss and gnutls.

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2010-11-04 05:16:23 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '12'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 5 Dan Young 2010-12-21 00:30:07 UTC
This is still an issue w/ v1.2.16 shipped w/ Fedora 14...

The xmlsec1 binary in the xmlsec1 package is non-functional without xmlsec1-<crypto>-devel installed because of the missing unversioned libxmlsec1-<crypto>.so symlinks.
