Description Gerald Kelly 2000-08-21 21:01:48 EDT
Attempted to compile a sample program from  the Lotus Notes R5.0.3 C  API
toolkit . (sample program is called intro)  The build fails because
libposix.so cannot  be found to link with.  A find search of my hard drive
cannot locate this file. This same sample program builds properly under
RedHat 6.2 (intel), as libposix.so  exists in /usr/lib

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2000-08-22 12:16:47 EDT
Actually, there was just libposix.a, never libposix.so, and it has always been
a dumb library for broken programs (it did not contain anything), so you can
safely remove it from the Makefiles. glibc itself provides POSIX mandated
interfaces (and -lpthread, -lrt and other libraries as needed).
