Description of problem:
Should fix redhat-lsb to support PPC64 and S390X
Package libpng-compat stores libpng12.so.0 in Fedora 17 and rhel7. So need fix redhat-lsb to requires libpng-compat instead of libpng.
redhat-lsb-4.1-5.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 17 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing redhat-lsb-4.1-5.fc17'
as soon as you are able to.

then log in and leave karma (feedback).
redhat-lsb-4.1-5.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
This was fixed in completely the wrong way. The package should be updated to use libpng 1.5. libpng-compat is not going to be shipped in F18.

Thanks Tom. I think redhat-lsb will update to use libpng 1.5 when LSB 5.0 release.

Hm, when will that be? I'd like to drop libpng 1.2 from Fedora soon, like in a matter of weeks. I'm willing to assist in creating a patch for redhat-lsb if needed.
Hi Tom, LSB is a api/abi standard, some software, for example, gooogle chrome browser need we support this standard. Please reference here:
Perhaps I'm missing the point, but I see nothing in ISO 23360-1 or ISO 23360-2 that mandates libpng at all, let alone libpng 1.2 in particular. You're going to need more evidence than this if you want me to not remove libpng-compat from the distribution.
what is remaining to be done here in this bug?
Oh, I forgot this is still open.
After discussion elsewhere it was concluded that we do still need to ship libpng 1.2 for the time being (solely, IMO, for pro forma compliance with LSB, not because there's a *good* reason to ship it). If you're referencing the library by soname then this is NOTABUG. If you're referencing libpng-compat, it should be renamed to libpng12 in the Requires.
libpng soname is referenced. Closing NOTABUG per Tom's comment.
