Description Mattias Ellert 2012-07-12 03:08:30 EDT
Description of problem:

Both libdb-devel and libdb4-devel install a symlink %{_libdir}/libdb.so pointing to different targets. And similarly for the other devel packages. This results in a conflict and the packages can not be installed in parallel.

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


Additional info:

The unversioned symlinks in libdb4 should be moved to a subdirectory.

%{_libdir}/libdb4/libdb.so -> ../libdb-4.8.so

The libraries themselves and the versioned symlinks should stay in %{_libdir}.

PS. libdb4-cxx-devel is missing a requires on libdb4-devel. (The /usr/include/libdb4/db_cxx.h header contains #included "db.h".)
