I just upgraded to 3.05a and now KPackage fails.

joy:/tmp# kpackage
kpackage: error while loading shared libraries: librpmbuild-4.0.3.so:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Seems like kpackage needs a rebuild:


I got it to work with symlinks since I really don't need rpm's at this
point but I didn't quite understand what you are trying to tell me and
would appreciate more information.  I do agree that something looks broken.

It's that you don't have librpmbuild-4.0.3.so on your machine. In such a
case I go to:


and search all the distros. But erm - what I wrote before didn't much
sense. You just have to grab some package that satisfies your dependencies
and install it. And you can check kpackage's dependencies - maybe it's
missing a dependency on librpm4 - and report it to debian's maintainer
Chris Cheney <ccheney at debian.org> who will probably fix it.

AFAICT the 3.x.x versions D/L'd from other than debian.org are quite out of sync with the Debian packages which are 2.x.x. I will mention this to Chris but I'm not sure what it means to the official Debian packages.

Thanks again,
