Description Enrico Scholz 2001-12-21 17:25:39 EST
The bonobo build-process creates and installs libtool library files which
should be in the -devel package also:

$ ls /var/tmp/bonobo-1.0.17-root/usr/lib/*.la

$ rpm -ql `rpm -qa | grep bonobo` | grep .la

$ rpm -qa | grep bonobo
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2001-12-21 20:02:03 EST
Does anything actually want these files? (other than other .la files from
compiled when bonobo .la files were installed)
Comment 2 Enrico Scholz 2001-12-21 20:28:12 EST
Don't know if a specific package needs them, but libtool uses them to determine
dependencies at static linking.
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2001-12-22 09:58:28 EST
But you'd normally link bonobo using the output of "gnome-config --libs bonobo"
which already has all the deps, right.
Comment 4 Enrico Scholz 2002-01-10 13:41:35 EST
You're right. Closing the bug...
