Bug Description

Binary package hint: ia32-libs

Dear Colleagues,

please add libnspr4-0d to the ia32-libs package.


libnspr4-0d is needed to run Adobes Flash Media Server on Ubuntu/Debian without any hassels.


Add libnspr4-0d to fetch-and-build
Eventually add some links from <libname>.so.* to <libname>.so so that Adobe FMS can find the libs properly, but this is only beauty ;)

Thx in Advance,

Can we mark this bug as a higher priority? Adobe Flash 10 (release candidate onwards) will also have new dependencies, including:

I think it would be better to put some of those dependencies into an own package because not all of them are needed for such a wide use-case as those that are already in ia32-libs. Building larger packages slows downs updates and install often uneeded files.

most of the libs mentioned are needed for third party commercial apps on linux...so it's a usecase here to just add them..
more packages of this kind introduces more work for the maintainers...

i agree that those are worthwhile to be added to ia32libs package.

This bug was fixed in the package ia32-libs - 2.2ubuntu12

ia32-libs (2.2ubuntu12) intrepid; urgency=low

  * sources.list.deb: replacing hardy with intrepid
  * Refresh packages:
    + Changed lib pkg names
      - libltdl3 -> libltdl7
      - libopenal0d -> libopenal1
    + Removed libs:
      - libgail-common, libgail18 -> now in libgtk
    + Added libs: (LP: #246911)
      - libcurl3
      - libnspr4-0d
      - libnss3-1d
      - libssh2-1
  * debian/rules:
    - added symlinks for libnspr4-0d libraries.
      Usecase: Adobe Flash Media Server 3 needs them to start up properly on
      x86_64 systems.
