Description Andrew Sobala 2003-04-09 15:20:19 UTC
control-center includes these files:


It is missing:


So applications work, but ld refuses to link any new packages against this library.

Comment 1 Alexander Larsson 2003-08-29 10:39:02 UTC
The specfile specifically removes the .so file. Probably because nothing should link against this library (it has no headers for instance).

What tried to link against it?

Comment 2 Andrew Sobala 2003-08-29 11:43:53 UTC
This was from when themus was a standalone module; it needed this to change
window themes.

I'm going from memory here, but I think the relevant headers are installed by
the control-center tarball in include/gnome-window-settings-2.0/*.h. So if the
headers aren't meant to be installed then that's an upstream bug.

Marking this as a dup of 88375 and adding a comment there. These needs
to be fixed together.
