Description Hans de Goede 2000-06-14 11:31:41 EDT
XFree86-libs-4.0 contain both libAw.so.7 and libAw.so.6 libs for backward
compatibility. Xaw3d is also upgraded to version 7, but doesn't have an
backward compatibilty lib. This bit me when install xawtv from the 6.2
powertools CD, and will very probably also bite other external RPMS.

I've solved it by adding a symlink and using --nodeps. The real fix would
then ofcourse be to rebuild Xaw3d and list libXaw.so.6 as a provide.

I dunno if this is correct though, since there might have been some api
changes, this however works for me (TM)

It was fixed. I have added the backward compatibility library Xaw3d.so.6.

Thanks for your report.
