Description Joe Orton 2003-05-01 14:29:22 UTC
/usr/lib64/libaspell.la and /usr/lib64/libpspellis broken on Hammer - nobody can
link against this pack

# Directory that this library needs to be installed in:

Comment 1 Joe Orton 2003-05-01 14:31:31 UTC
Oops, hit enter prematurely there.

The .la files are broken on all platforms; they contain bad libdir= lines, which
means they can't be linked against.

# Directory that this library needs to be installed in:

additionally the dependency_libs look bogus:

# Libraries that this one depends upon.
dependency_libs=' -L/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.2.2
-L/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.2.2/../../.. -lstdc++ -lm -lc -lgcc_s'

Comment 2 Joe Orton 2003-05-01 14:40:36 UTC
Actually, that's not  true - you *can* link against a .la file with a bad
libdir= line, though you get a warning.  But you can't link against libpspell.la
which has a reference to libaspell.la in the build dir:

dependency_libs=' /usr/src/build/242548-x86_64/install/usr/lib64/libaspell.la

so that's the important thing to fix.

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2003-05-01 14:57:12 UTC
Easy fix is to just remove the .la files from the package ;-)

Comment 4 Eido Inoue 2003-05-01 16:33:29 UTC
libaspell.la and libpspell.la removed in release 4

Comment 5 Eido Inoue 2003-05-01 16:46:14 UTC
scratch that. looks like the la files are needed for dynamic loading. they're a
feature. will have to fix the libdir lines.

Comment 6 Florian La Roche 2003-05-20 15:52:13 UTC
Please look at the newest freeradius patch to find an example that might
be similar in aspell to remove this requirement.

The problem is moot now; the .la files have been removed.
