Description milburn 1999-07-19 12:07:04 UTC
After upgrading to RH6.0 my users reported the following error message while trying to launch "xv." xv: error in loading shared libraries: libpng.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory I looked in /usr/lib and the libpng.so.0 sym link that was there in RH5.x was now gone, but the xv version (xv-3.10a-9) had not been recompiled for the newer version of libpng. My work around was to sym link /usr/lib/libpng.so.126.96.36.199 to /usr/lib/libpng.so.0. Just thought you'd like to know. -shane

Yes, we stopped shipping XV as of the 6.0 release due to licensing issues, and therefore it did not get upgraded, thus breaking this dependency. Sorry about that. I am forwarding this issue to a developer to try and be a little more proactive in the future about breaking dependencies for packages that are no longer a part of the distribution.

You can probably rebuild the xv source package from an older distribution on your 6.0 system if you want it.
