= Proposed System Wide Change: OpenLDAP without Non-threaded Libraries =
* Matus Honek <mhonek at redhat dot com>
OpenLDAP will not ship non-threaded version of libldap. Instead,
libldap will be built with the same threading support as libldap_r.
== Detailed description ==
After this change the non-threaded version of libldap will not be
shipped any more. Instead, this library will rather be built the same
way as the threaded libldap_r. This has been previously discussed in
other distributions where this change already happened. Upstream still
supports non-threaded version of their library as it might be used on
processors where threads are not supported. However, when these two
versions happen to be loaded at the same time (as discussed about Curl
in the Bugzilla) symbol names overlap which may result in
unpredictable behaviour. Immediate solution would be to symlink
libldap to libldap_r, however SONAME of the library would be the same,
hence breaking dependencies of other packages. For that reason the
solution hereby proposed should be the most convenient one.
== Scope ==
* Proposal owners:
update SPEC file so that non-threaded libldap is replaced with threaded one.
* Other developers:
None. Issues should not occur.
