|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0016504: libsmi-devel and libsmi-debuginfo not available in CentOS 8|
|Description||The libsmi-debuginfo package is not available from debuginfo.centos.org and the libsmi-devel package is nowhere to be found (except on https://koji.mbox.centos.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=1215 but it's not downloadable for mortals from there).|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|There seems to be a number of packages missing. For me, I was looking for postgresql-devel (or possibly libecpg-devel). Since dnf provides "*bin/ecpg" returns no match, I thought I would try to build from source, which leads to unavailable packages: docbook-utils, elinks, help2man, and uuid-devel. I'm not sure if this should be reported as a separate issue, or bundled in with this one, as it seems like its related|
|ipset-devel is also missing, and I'm sure there are lots more... A simple solution would be to dump all built packages that are not included in the normal repos in a separate repo somewhere so they are at least available, regardless of how the upstream vendor will handle these missing packages.|
|Can you say a little more about what you're building (outside of the CentOS distribution) that requires each of these packages?|
|In our case, we have an application that has been running since at least RedHat9 (zoot) days that uses ecpg, which is PostgreSQL's version of Oracle's PRO*C. I can see that packages exist in all the current fedora releases for libecpg-devel, and it looks like the packages are available on RHEL8 and they even seem to be in the CentOS developer area. They just didn't get pushed down into the release. Until this gets resolved, I can't port my application forward to CentOS8. With CentOS 6 reaching EOL in a few months and CentOS7 slipping into Maintenance mode in August, moving forward to a Linux distribution that wont fall afoul of GDPR or PCI issues is important. If we can't continue to develop on CentOS, we'll have to move on to another distribution.|
We have a proprietary application using libsmi to parse MIB files.
Not that I see how it matters? The packages are already built, so you just have to make them downloadable from Koji. All packages, even intermediate builds, was downloadable from the CentOS 7 build bot.
[rpmbuild@c8-rpmbuild SPECS]$ rpmbuild -ba wireshark.spec
error: Failed build dependencies:
libsmi-devel is needed by wireshark-1:2.6.2-11.el8.x86_64
Would be great if libsmi-devel package could be released so that one can rebuild packages dependent upon it.
We are migrating to CentOS 8 here and our application needs a custom version of Wireshark (with dissectors for our own protocols). To build Wireshark we need libsmi-devel.
