kbirthday - neither linda nor lintian clean
I packaged kbirthday, a KDE kicker applet that reminds
of birthdays (which it reads from the KDE adressbook).
I've got one message from lintian and one from linda
- but two different ones.
linda tells me:
W: kbirthday; Contains shared libraries, but is not in
Section: libs or base.
Technically, a kicker applet is a shared object.
>From users view, it is a (kicker) application.
So I'd like to have it in section "kde".
Is it ok to disregard this warning?
lintian tells me:
E: kbirthday: no-shlibs-control-file usr/lib/libkbirthday.so
Problem is: The library has no soname version number
at all (*), and as far as I understood, there's no shlibs
without a soname version. Do I have to beat upstream
until he sets such a number? Or is there a possibillity
for a valid shlibs file without it?
The files can be found here:
$ objdump -p debian/kbirthday/usr/lib/libkbirthday.so | grep SONAME
