No soname on generated shared lib - Fedora rpm package

#1 Post by mrceresa » Mon, 2010-03-22, 18:52

Hello everybody,
first of all thanks a lot for dcmtk which is a very impressive software.

I'm one of the package mantainer of Fedora and I'm trying to package dcmtk as an rpm. You can see the review progress here:

I used the following patch on the original source tree: ... ared.patch

to generate the shared libs. This is a requisite for packaging the software into Fedora. I found that the generated libs lack a proper soname.

I'd like to fix it, but I have to say that I know very little of autoconf (I use mainly cmake) and I don't know the proper spell to add the version information.

I tried putting:

LDFLAGS=-version-info 3:5:4

into config/
and then reconfiguring, but it didn't work.

Any help would be very appreciated.

Thanks and regards,


Jörg Riesmeier

I'm also not an expert on this kind of things but maybe the following reference helps: (search for "soname").
