Description bpinaud 1999-11-29 22:31:11 UTC
On my frech install of the RH6.1, the file beginning of the file
/usr/include/rpm/rpmlib.h is :

#include <rpmio.h>
#include <dbindex.h>
#include <header.h>
#include <popt.h>

and it should be

#include <rpm/rpmio.h>
#include <rpm/dbindex.h>
#include <rpm/header.h>
#include <popt.h>

because gcc said said that it could not find rpmio.h, dbindex.h and

Add -I/usr/include/rpm to your CFLAGS.

Comment 2 Kuszmaul, Bradley 2001-06-19 18:56:13 UTC
I believe that this is still a bug.  The maximum rpm book says to write
 #include <rpm/rpmlib.h>
but then the header files don't work unless I write -I/usr/include/rpm in which
case I could have written
 #include <rpmlib.h>

And what if I am writing something that wants to use another package that has a
header.h file in its include path somewhere.  (E.g. /usr/include/pci/header.h)
In that case I could end up with a collision.
