Description Jonathan Kamens 2000-05-21 15:39:18 UTC
I installed libstdc++-2.95.3-0.20000517.  It doesn't include the
backward-compatibility library libstdc++-libc6.1-2.so.3 for x86, although
there's code in the spec file which seems to try to install it (at least
for sparc).  It should be included for x86 too.

I was able to install this upgrade even though groff-1.15-9 requires
libstdc++-libc6.1-2.so.3.  I do not understand why I was allowed to install
this upgrade; shouldn't rpm have informed me that the upgrade would erase a
library which another installed package depends upon?

This has been fixed since then, there are compat-libstdc++ and libstdc++
as separated packages
