Description dedu 1999-09-03 20:58:36 UTC
The rpm package for python creates /usr/bin/python and
/usr/bin/python1.5 as separate, identical files.  Wouldn't
it be preferable, to gain disk space, to create python as a
symbolic link to python1.5?

The two files are hard links:

krusty:~/tmp 445 bash$ rpm -q python
python-1.5.2-4
krusty:~/tmp 446 bash$ ls -al /usr/bin/python*
-rwxr-xr-x   2 root     root       414936 Aug 24 12:07
/usr/bin/python*
-rwxr-xr-x   2 root     root       414936 Aug 24 12:07
/usr/bin/python1.5*
