Hi,

Hello Mates,

actually im working on the Packes libatlas3 and kde4-skrooge (Project:
home:saigkill).
RPMLint says:
libatlas3.x86_64: E: devel-file-in-non-devel-package (Badness: 50)
/usr/lib64/libatlas.so
libatlas3.x86_64: E: devel-file-in-non-devel-package (Badness: 50)
/usr/lib64/libcblas.so
libatlas3.x86_64: E: devel-file-in-non-devel-package (Badness: 50)
/usr/lib64/libf77blas.so

This i don't understand. I thought, that only *.h Files included in -
devel Package. And here RPMLint would like to move the so's to devel.
Anyone understand this?

*.so files are used by the link editor (ld) to create executables, they
are not used at runtime, where the *.so.* files are used instead (and *.so
usually are just softlinks to *.so.*). Hence they belong to the -devel
packages. Take care of only moving the *.so there, not the *.so.* .


Ciao,
Michael.
