Description Jim Hayward 2002-07-02 04:25:41 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020629

Description of problem:
The spec file for esound-0.2.27-2 is incorrect. libesd.la and libesddsp.la are
being built, but are not being installed.

Adding %{_libdir}/*.la to the spec file cures the problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. recompile the esound-0.2.27-2 source rpm

Actual Results:  libesd.la and libesddsp.la are not being installed

Expected Results:  libesd.la and libesddsp.la should be installed

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-02 05:45:05 UTC
The policy for all the gnome packages is "no .la files"

You should not need these files unless they are hardcoded in _another_ .la file
somewhere ("grep libesd.la /usr/lib/*.la" to find them), in which case the bug
is in the package that contains that other .la file. (Said package needs to be
rebuilt with the no-.la esound, or just have its .la files removed also.)

If you figure out which package contains the hardcoded reference to libesd.la
please file a bug against that package. Or if this wasn't the problem, please
post the exact error messages that you encountered due to missing libesd.la.

Comment 2 Jim Hayward 2002-07-02 06:18:35 UTC
The original problem with libesd.la is when trying to recompile of
evolution-1.0.7-2.src.rpm exiting with the error that it can't find

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-02 12:48:31 UTC
Yes, that will be because one of the other .la files contains a reference to

Comment 4 Jim Hayward 2002-07-02 18:01:50 UTC
OK, so is this a problem with Evolution or one of the other packages it requires
in order to compile?

I have Evolution 1.0.7-2 up and running. It runs great. I just worked around the
libesd.la issue for now.

Is the "no gnome .la files" files something new? I see that the original
esound-devel package that shipped with Red Hat 7.3 did include the *.la files.

Thanks again.

Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-02 18:51:12 UTC
The problem is with whichever libs contain a reference to libesd.la. "grep
libesd.la /usr/lib/*.la" should turn them up.

The policy is new, yes. Sort of a gradual thing.
