0003242Doomseeker[All Projects] Bugpublic2017-09-01 15:392018-10-27 22:53
Assigned ToBlzut3 
Platformx86_64OSDebian GNU/LinuxOS Versionbuster/sid
Product Version1.1 
Target Version1.2Fixed in Version1.2 
Summary0003242: libwadseeker: Doesn't distinguish version from ELF shared object filename, ABI cannot safely change
DescriptionLibwadseeker builds into a shared object named For compatibility and to avoid breaking some systems with multiple versions of Libwadseeker, the shared object should be named according to its version e.g. and/or, alternatively and/or

Lintian warning tag: shlib-without-versioned-soname (severity normal, certainty possible)
Steps To ReproducePresent in binary builds and debuild source builds at /usr/lib/ (tested with Doomseeker source).
Additional InformationI'm not entirely sure if this is an upstream issue of development practice, a packaging issue which downstream should always handle or me not calling CMake or debuild correctly. [^] [^] [^]

Also the SONAME, not just the filename.

Engine libraries are also affected, but not yet caught by lintian because they live in /usr/share/doomseeker/engines instead of /usr/lib (issue 0003232).

I think it will also be necessary to lock all exported symbols in Wadseeker namespace.

It may not be elegant, but a quick fix (without extensive testing) to this would be:

- set_target_properties(wadseeker PROPERTIES AUTOMOC ON)
+ set_target_properties(wadseeker PROPERTIES AUTOMOC ON VERSION 1.2)

in src/wadseeker/CMakeLists.txt. This created to be a symlink to with the appropriate SONAME.

I tried VERSION and SOVERSION in project() and set() too, that had no effect (despite me setting CMP0048 policy to NEW).

Since your earlier note, the plugins have been moved to lib and lintian still doesn't care. Are you sure that the plugins need an SOVERSION? Right now Doomseeker implements its own cross platform ABI versioning check, so we wouldn't be doing anything with it anyway.

I'll have to check again, but at least earlier debuild(1) didn't use CPackDeb but the regular building process by default.

Both "#" and depends name change intended or not?

The removal of the line yes (should be picked up by dpkg-shlibdep now that the SOVERSION is in place), the fact that I didn't actually remove the line no.

See Zalewa's comment on BitBucket on VERSION_STRING from WADSEEKER_LIBVERSION.

Frankly I couldn't possibly care less about that style change. If Zalewa wants to change it to be done that way he can, but would suggest doing it next time versions are bumped.

I mean there is a reason I did it the way I did, but since the two forms are functionally identical it's not even worth debating since it could be decoupled later if the scenario I'm thinking of is even remotely relevant.

Compiled this in Docker and 'readelf -d' says SONAME is

Lib and symlinks also appear to be correct:

root@30376b026750:/doomseeker# ls -la /usr/local/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ | grep wadseeker
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Mar 3 20:48 ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Mar 3 20:48 ->
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 925077 Mar 3 20:47

So I think we can consider this as "tested".

I trust your test should be enough, Zalewa. I can't see why it wouldn't be with SONAME and filenames. Thank you.
