Description Eric Smith 2007-07-11 19:27:59 EDT
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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
install nx package
Actual results:
separate files for short and long form library names

Expected results:
short form path names symlinked to long form names
