Description Zenon Panoussis 2010-11-22 04:58:34 UTC
Description of problem:

psql (8.4.4)
Type "help" for help.

osm=# select * from osm_roads where name like '%MIDC Road%';
ERROR:  could not access file "$libdir/liblwgeom": No such file or directory

And indeed, liblwgeom is not present. Rebuilding the src.rpm gives the following errors from autoconf:

checking for dblatex... no
configure: WARNING: dblatex is not installed so PDF documentation cannot be built
checking CUnit/CUnit.h usability... no
checking CUnit/CUnit.h presence... no
checking for CUnit/CUnit.h... no
configure: WARNING: could not locate CUnit required for liblwgeom unit tests

liblwgeom neither gets installed nor packaged. As a result, the entire postgis package becomes useless for its purpose. I don't know whether this is a packaging (buildreq) or a makefile (upstream) issue. 

The dblatex issue is really a separate bug. A "buildreq: tetex-tex4ht" is probably needed, but not sufficient by itself. The warning appears even when dblatex is present on the system.

Comment 1 Zenon Panoussis 2010-11-23 02:22:26 UTC
The liblwgeom problem is a db/postgis version issue and not a build error after all: http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.gis.postgis/25591 .

I'm leaving the bug open anyway because of the dblatex issue. Severity needs to go down though.

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-16 18:00:21 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.  At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this 
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen 
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached 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, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that 
version of Fedora.

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:
