Re: dnf fail in do_rootfs cannot find shared library

Måns Zigher <mans.zigher@...>


I am sorry but I cannot locate the .spec file. I tried searching for .spec in the tmp/work but I could not find any .spec file. Do I have to build with a flag to get this .spec file?

One more thing: can you provide the .spec file that is generated
during build and used to create .rpm packages? You will find it under

Please try not to edit anything out of it.

One of the binaries in the packages is a library let's call it This library is part of the package that the recipe is producing. The library is placed under /usr/lib/.
