Description Jose Pedro Oliveira 2007-03-04 01:45:56 UTC
Description of problem:
syslog-ng 2.0.x is targeted to replace sysklogd in Fedora Core 7
( and one of the
problems that needs to be addressed is the tcp_wrappers support.

Right now the syslog-ng 2.0.2 (the version available in FE-devel) still
doesn't support tcp_wrappers (but versions 1.6.x did) but the support has
just been added upstream (syslog-ng snapshosts after 2007-02-28). 

The problem is that syslog-ng being one of the first daemons being loaded can
not depend on /usr files, namely libraries.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(syslog-ng 2.0.3 snapshot)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build the above srpm in rawhide
Actual results:
$  ldd ../BUILD/syslog-ng-2.0.2+20070304/src/syslog-ng =>  (0x00ac0000) => /lib/ (0x46ae6000) => /lib/ (0x466a2000) => /lib/ (0x43001000) => /lib/ (0x4b805000)
  -->> => /usr/lib/ (0x45bf6000)  <<-- (PROBLEM) => /lib/ (0x458d3000) => /lib/ (0x45a4e000)
        /lib/ (0x458b6000)

Expected results:

Right now I see two possible solutions for the described problem:

1) use the tcp_wrappers static link

   Would be nice to have it in a separate package so that it would easier
   to detect the static dependency (tcp_wrappers-static). This would
   be similar to the glib2 split (there is now a glib2 static subpackage
   due to anaconda) and would also extend the split described in #193188.

2) move the tcp_wrappers dynamic library to /lib

   Again as done with glib2.

I believe the best solution would be the second one but I'm also insterested to
see if there others alternatives.

Thanks in advance,
