Description Timothy Redaelli 2017-11-30 15:25:04 UTC
Created attachment 1360972 [details]

Description of problem:
Any symlink in %{_libdir}/dpdk-pmds links to the related ".so" file (in /usr/lib64), but it should point insted to the ".so.[0-9]" file, since the ".so" file is installed by dpdk-devel package and not by dpdk package.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Tested in dpdk 17.11, probably broken since dpdk-2.2.0-2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install dpdk without installing dpdk-devel
2. Do "ls -l /usr/lib64/dpdk-pmds"

Actual results:
Symlinks are broken

Expected results:
Symlinks are not broken

Additional info:
This prevent any software dynamically linked by dpdk to load, at runtime, the related pmd.
For example testpmd (installed in dpdk package) doesn't work correctly unless you install dpdk-devel.
