Description Mike A. Harris 2003-02-05 00:13:45 EST
Freetype debuginfo package has a bunch of dead symlinks that get reported
by rpmlint:

W: freetype-debuginfo dangling-symlink
/usr/src/debug/freetype-2.1.3/freetype-pre1.4/lib/memory.c

The example above is x86_64, however it occurs on all architectures.
Comment 1 Owen Taylor 2003-02-05 00:18:11 EST
What version of the freetype package?
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-05 00:30:25 EST
freetype-2.1.3-6
Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2003-02-11 16:41:58 EST
Alex -- it should "just work" in all cases, right?
Comment 4 Alexander Larsson 2003-02-12 04:00:27 EST
debuginfo package creation is not that smart. All the source filenames
referenced in the debug info are added to the package. If these are symlinks i
guess we only get the symlink. Maybe we should add --dereference to the cpio
call that makes the copy.
Comment 5 Owen Taylor 2003-08-28 14:52:15 EDT
Was fixed in freetype-2.1.4-1
