Description Braden McDaniel 2004-05-08 15:27:00 UTC
Description of problem: The libboost_*.so symlinks seem to be missing. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.31.0-6
Comment 1 Anthony Green 2004-10-07 15:18:10 UTC
Yes - the boost installation is completely busted. There are no .so files, just .a libs and .so.1* files. Even worse, libboost_thread.a doesn't even get installed - so that part of boost is completely unusable. This is true for FC2 as well as the FC3 test releases.
Comment 2 Benjamin Kosnik 2004-11-30 00:25:53 UTC
This is an issue with boost build. It's fixed in boost-1.32.0-0. -benjamin
Comment 3 Benjamin Kosnik 2004-12-02 17:09:54 UTC
Gah. No, it's not. I'm fixing it now, in boost-1.32.0-3. -benjamin
Comment 4 Jef Spaleta 2004-12-02 18:07:04 UTC
Please be advised that the Obsoleting instructions in the boost update for fc3 that was released that refered to this bugreport to updates-released caused an unfortunate side effect of incorrectly obsoleting boost-devel and removing it from the system when upgrading just the boost package. Not a horrible problem, but its pretty shallow. Without commenting on the importance or severity of the fixes in boost-1.32.0-1.fc3 specifically, because i am unqualified to do so, I would like to encourage you to please use updates-testing tree for as many updates as is appropriate. It would have been nice if this update could have been placed into updates-testing to catch the shallow obsoleting problem before releasing to updates-release. While competent testing can not be garunteed if an update sits in the updates-testing tree for a few days, it certaintly can't hurt to have an update bake in updates-testing for a few days if the update is not deemed critical or a security fix. -jef

The development .so symlinks are still missing in boost-devel-1.32.0-3 The spec file doesn't currently install the .so symlinks from the stage directory where it installs the other lib files from.
Comment 6 Benjamin Kosnik 2005-03-16 23:15:21 UTC
Yep. I believe I finally fixed this for real in boost-1.32.0-4, and will be pushing this out shortly. best, benjamin

looking at boost-1.32.0-5 from fc3-updates-testing, the .so symlinks are packaged in the main package, they should be packaged in the -devel package as they are only used during linking.
