Description Mike A. Harris 2003-02-05 05:13:45 UTC
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 05:18:11 UTC
What version of the freetype package?

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-05 05:30:25 UTC
freetype-2.1.3-6

Comment 3 Owen Taylor 2003-02-11 21:41:58 UTC
Alex -- it should "just work" in all cases, right?


Comment 4 Alexander Larsson 2003-02-12 09:00:27 UTC
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 18:52:15 UTC
Was fixed in freetype-2.1.4-1
