Description kenneth_porter 2000-09-22 02:29:13 EDT
Only /lib/libproc.2.0.7 is installed, not the less-specific links. Other packages (specifically, rusers) then bind to a specific version, making it 
impossible to upgrade procps without either uninstalling the dependent package or forcing the upgrade.See also bugid 17786.
Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 2001-02-01 15:05:29 EST
The minor number of the procps library does not change unless there are
incompatible changes.  procps does not export a -devel package for a
reason: the large amount of work to change libproc into a proper interface
hasn't been done.  libproc exists to save space between procps programs,
it is not an exported interface.  I agree that this is suboptimal, but
I don't have time to change it now.
