Description Warren Togami 2008-08-08 16:50:21 EDT
According to Debian, they have libcurl.so.3 as a symlink to libcurl.so.4 because upstream screwed up and they are actually the same ABI.  The only thing that changed is that some things from .3 are now deprecated.

This will soon become an issue for us as Adobe will release Flash 10 with a link to libcurl.so.3.

We could do better than a symlink.

Nalin recommended writing an empty dummy library named libcurl.so.3 that links to libcurl.so.4.  This would make RPM do the right thing and provide the correct so-names in both archs of the package.

I will write this myself and with your permission push it to Fedora Updates for 8 and higher.

Hi Warren, spot has already applied the soname fix in rawhide. Hopefully, it will work.
