Description Aleksey Nogin 2002-03-27 23:58:58 EST
Currently lost of packages need libdb.so.2, but rpm will happily allow one to
remove the db1 package if compat-glibc is installed. We need to make sure either:

- Compat-glibc does not provide libdb.so.2


- Packages that need the "real" db1 (for example, up2date-gnome would not work
without it) s
should require it explicitly (not of them currently do).


- We only have one libdb.so.2 (if that is possible).
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2004-10-04 19:07:59 EDT
compat-glibc in RHEL3 doesn't provide any libraries, Fedora Core [123]
don't contain any compat-glibc.
