Description Daniel Powell 2002-09-24 14:36:11 UTC

Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install libtiff
2. Try and install cups-libs
3. Cups libs requires libtiff.so.3
4. trying to determine which package provides i ran across a missing provides 


Actual Results:  cup-libs says it needs libtiff.so.3

[djpowell@Hydrometer djpowell]$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3
file /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3 is not owned by any package

[djpowell@Hydrometer djpowell]$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3.5

Expected Results:  [djpowell@Hydrometer djpowell]$ rpm -
qf /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3.5

libtiff.so.3 should resolve to the same package.

Additional info:

I dont know that this really affects the installation but i was trying to find 
what provided libtiff so i could install it on another system in order to get 
samba installed , samba requires libcups which requires libtiff. Libtiff was 
on another machine and i ran rpm -qf /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3 ... results as 
above. Should the provides list this file? even though libtiff.so.3 is a 
symlink.. it still seems as a normal file to the system and binareis linked 
against it.

It may not be the depends per se, but rather that the RPM does not claim all 
the files.

Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2002-10-04 15:05:04 UTC
I'll have to check the specfile and the depends stuff in there, maybe something
is wrong.

Read ya, Phil
