Description Gene Czarcinski 1999-09-02 18:34:06 UTC
gawk-3.0.0-7 installs separate /bin/gawk and /bin/gawk-3.0.3
of the size 143804 bytes each.  Why?? These files appear to
be duplicates and "waste" space (though not much).  Worse,
it is confusing.  Is there some reason that gawk is not a
symbolic link to gawk-3.0.3?

The files are hard linked:

krusty:~/tmp 441 bash$ rpm -q gawk
gawk-3.0.4-1
krusty:~/tmp 442 bash$ ls -al /bin/gawk*
-rwxr-xr-x   2 root     root       176648 Jul  9 22:55 /bin/gawk*
-rwxr-xr-x   2 root     root       176648 Jul  9 22:55
/bin/gawk-3.0.4*
