Description Gilles Dartiguelongue 2009-10-18 14:37:44 UTC
Created attachment 30542 [details] [review]

prefix + lib/ = libdir, see attached patch.

actually I think this is still not the proper place but it's a better default than not taking multilib into account at all. Thanks for considering.

This used to be this way but we changed it due to some problems Kay found.  What problems does the current way cause?

    install scripts into $(prefix)/lib instead of $libdir
    We don't want scripts going into lib64...
Comment 2 Gilles Dartiguelongue 2010-01-31 01:29:12 UTC
It causes no real problem, it's just that some of us get QA warnings when a package installs stuff in /usr/lib while it should have gone in /usr/lib64 (non respected autotools config switch, ...). Also admittedly shell scripts are not arch dependent, that's why I think they shouldn't be in /usr/lib* at all.

In any case, I'd be curious to know what were the problems when scripts were in /usr/lib64 since I've had no user report about anything broken yet.
