Comment 1 Lukas Javorsky 2020-08-25 11:11:23 UTC
This is caused by the new way of building packages using CMake macros.

When switched back to the old way of building, it builds correctly.

Somehow the libraries (libmysql_strings and libmysql_sys) are expected as dynamically linked, however they are built statically during the build phase.
Linking expects them to be *.so but they are *.a so it fails to install.

I'm going to investigate where this behaviour differs, and causes this problem.

Comment 2 Lukas Javorsky 2020-08-25 12:04:00 UTC
Problem found.

The %cmake macro contains one CMake option '-DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS:BOOL=ON' which forces the libraries to be dynamic (

However, in order to install this package, they need to be built statically, what was the case until the cmake-build change.

This can be easily reverted with '-DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS:BOOL=OFF' option in spec.

The main question is... Why the 'ON' option is default? And, if we should consider building it as dynamic libraries?

This also affects Fedora 31 and 32, as you probably realize.

All subpackages of a package against which this bug was filled are now installable or removed from Fedora 34.

Thanks for taking care of it!
