Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 848950
Update libffi to 3.0.9
Last modified: 2013-10-06 21:33:44 EDT
Description of problem:
I'd like to install libffi >= 3.0.9 on my RHEL 6 machine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
try and install libffi 3.0.9
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install libffi-3.0.9
fails to find the package
installs libffi 3.0.9
The soversion didn't update between 3.0.5 and 3.0.10 (current fedora) so I don't think this would be a big issue to update at some point.
The benefit would be allowing EPEL to backport packages needing newer versions of libffi (#828950).
I'll mention some of the bugs I've put in.
