Description Chris Chabot 2002-01-15 20:26:06 UTC
When building ORBit-0.5.12 (rawhide of jan 14th), i noticed that the libORBit.la
file is not included in the %files part of the .spec file. This causes every
package that depends on it for building to fail.. (i noticed while recompiling
control-center & evolution).

the fix is simply to include %libdir/*.la ;-)

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-01-15 20:40:08 UTC
It should only cause builds to fail if you have previously built another library
against a version of ORBit that _did_ contain *.la

I haven't decided yet if it's a bug to include .la or a bug to leave it out...
they mostly just cause problems and have no apparent benefit...

Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-02-08 22:56:51 UTC
OK, for now at least I've adopted the policy of "no .la files"
