Description of problem:
Lazarus contains a component for using sqlite3 as database backend. This component can't be used because it requires a libsqlite3.so
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start lazarus
2. create a new project
3. place a sqlite3 connection component on the form
4. set the databasename property
5. set the active property to true
"Can not load SQLite client library "libsqlite3.so". Check your installation."
no error should appear
When you, as a developer, want to use sqlite, you should now that you'll have to install sqlite.
Or else Lazarus has to depend on all packages you can use when you build your own programs. That'll mean it has to depend on almost all other library-packages. That's not doable.
As you can see in my original post sqlite is installed but the file/symlink libsqlite3.so is missing and for that reason it's impossible to create applications using the sqlit3connection component of lazarus.
IMHO either the component source needs to be patched to search for the correct file or the sqlite3 package needs to create a libsqlite3 symlink.
Sorry, didn't read it well. But you need the sqlite3-devel package.
So this is a missing dependency of lazarus?
