The handling of this error depends on ld.so's load path (the "linker path") and whether it refers to a private or public library.
 
 
The linker path is %{_libdir} + any path listed in /etc/ld.so.conf or in a file in /etc/ld.so.conf.d.
 
 
Public libraries are libs expected to be used by other packages, Other libraries e. g., plugins and functionality internal to the package are private.
 
 
We have four cases:
 
* The library is public. Inform upstream about the issue and propose that they add or fixes versioning, possibly by sending a patch. Don't apply the patch until it's merged upstream to avoid upgrade problems.
 
* The library is stored outside the linker paths. In this case the error can be ignored.
 
* The library is private and stored in a directory included in the linker paths. If possible, move the library to another directory outside the linker paths. This might require patching build scripts.
 
* The library is private, stored in a directory included in the linker paths and can't be moved. Here,  the library must have a name unlikely to clash with other libraries. Consider filtering the Provides: to make sure the private library isn't visible.
 
 
The standard way to move a private library is to create a new directory under %{_libdir} e. g., /usr/lib/myapp. Don't list it in /etc/ld.so.conf files! Instead, use a rpath to let the application locate the library.
 
 
Filtering has some limitations, see [[#no-soname]]
