+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #122817 +++

Looks like the fix for this never made it over from FC -> RHEL4.

Description of problem:
The libboost_*.so symlinks seem to be missing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Yep. I believe I finally fixed this for real in boost-1.32.0-4, and will be
pushing this out shortly.


-- Additional comment from on 2005-03-18 23:54 EST --
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.

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-06-01 11:24:16 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update

Comment 3 Ken Reilly 2007-08-08 19:24:26 UTC
I cleared the rhel-4.6, dev_ack and qa_ack flags since this problem has not been
resolved in 4.6. The package will be reassigned to another developer and it's
resolution will be determined in the coming months.
