Description Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-05-14 16:20:42 UTC
Despite the egcs-c++ package description, the shared
libstdc++ is included. It ought to be in the libstdc++
package only:

  rpm -qf /usr/lib/

  It does include the static standard C++ library and
  C++ header files; the library for dynamically linking
  programs is available separately.

Due to dependencies one cannot remove the libstdc++ package,
but one can remove the egcs-c++ package (*without* --nodeps)
which in turn will remove the shared library and thus breaks
any depending programs:

  rpm -e libstdc++
  error: removing these packages would break dependencies:

  rpm -e egcs-c++
    [/usr/lib/ now gone]

  kwm: error in loading shared libraries:
  cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Comment 1 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-05-14 17:35:59 UTC
it's an RPM bug that removing one removes the shared file - it's
being worked on.

Comment 2 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-05-14 17:39:59 UTC
fixed in rpm-3.0.1-9, available in today's rawhide.

Comment 3 Red Hat Bugzilla 1999-05-14 19:23:59 UTC
*** Bug 2825 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

My solution was to uninstall all tetex* RPMs and reinstall
them.  uninstall complained about not being able to delete
many files.
