Description Ville Skyttä 2011-02-22 07:05:03 UTC
libgda-sqlite doesn't find the sqlite shared library unless sqlite-devel is installed (it looks for libsqlite3.so).  It also lacks dependencies to anything sqlite related.  See bug 673809.

I suggest changing it to look for libsqlite3.so.0 instead of libsqlite3.so and adding a dependency on sqlite%{?_isa} or the proper libsqlite3.so.1 soname.

Comment 1 Haïkel Guémar 2011-02-22 10:38:50 UTC
i patched libgda to have a fallback when it doesn't find unversionned library and search for common versionned ones (actually libsqlite3.so.0). It seems to work but if you can confirm this before i actually push the change.
I have yet to find a portable way to handle this so i can file a patch upstream. If you have any ideas, you're welcome. :)

Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2011-02-22 18:49:27 UTC
The scratch build appears to work fine, although I just tested the case of doing something in gtranslator that crashed before.  Thanks.

Regarding a portable way to fix this, I wonder why won't they just link dynamically with libsqlite as usual?  libgda-postgres and libgda-mysql are linked with the corresponding client libs (based just on inspecting the package dependencies, not looked inside them), so I suppose they don't have a general policy against doing so.
