Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 247914
short-form library files should be symlinks
Last modified: 2008-03-06 11:34:21 EST
Description of problem:
The libraries installed by the nx package in /usr/lib/nx use duplicate
files for the short and full form names. Instead, libXcomp.so.2 should be a
symlink to libXcomp.so.2.1.0. This is standard practice for libraries, reduces
disk usage, and avoids problems with ldconfig.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
install nx package
separate files for short and long form library names
short form path names symlinked to long form names
I still see this bug with our latest 2.x builds, but I hope this will be fixed
with the upcoming 3.x builds.
nx-3.1.0-25.1.fc8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8
nx-3.1.0-25.1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
