    Unanswered: DB2 RPMs miss info on the libraries provided

    Hi All,

    I have DB2 8.1.4 running on RedHat AS 2.1 on x86.

    My problem is that I have a program packaged as rpm
    that is linked to libdb2.so1. So my rpm depends (requires)
    libdb2.so.1. This dependency is generated automatically
    by rpmbuild. When I try to install my rpm i get a message
    saying that libdb2.so.1 is needed by my package (which true).

    I checked that libdb2.so.1 is included in IBM_db2cliv81-8.1.0-32
    by running rpm -qf /opt/IBM/db2/V8.1/lib/libdb2.so.1

    When I check what that package provides

    # rpm -q --provides IBM_db2cliv81-8.1.0-32

    I get only

    IBM_db2cliv81 = 8.1.0-32

    Aparently there is no information what libraries are provided by IBM_db2cliv81. Such information is normally generated automatically by default.

    I consider that a problem in the way the DB2 rpms are build.
    Hopefully IBM can fix that shortly.
