I try to make a package of a program which is linked to such library (output from ldd):
libwx_baseu-2.8.so.0 => /usr/lib64/wx-2.8-wxcontainer/libwx_baseu-2.8.so.0
Pretty straightforward, right? But when I make a package of this program (with rpmbuild) and then try to install it, rpm complains about missing library (this one above):
error: Failed dependencies:
My guess is, rpmbuild set the dependency for the main lib directory, i.e. /usr/lib64.
Question -- how to fix this issue (ok, one would be forced install, but I would like to avoid it)? I.e. how to build rpm so the dependencies would set for the wx-2.8-wxcontainer subdirectory (for this library)?
openSUSE 11.4, if this matters.
I can install such package with --nodeps which forces installation, and after that install program works perfectly. So clearly, rpm or rpmbuild has issues, not the system itself.
I think this is limitation or bug in current rpm/rpmbuild versions. I reported this issue so I think in a way question is answered:
You always have to install wx rpms in pairs one with real library, the other package which simply says "the library was installed".
Without the second rpm, the package manager and/or dependent application would not know that the corresponding wx library is present at all.
