Description Olivier Baudron 2001-07-16 06:49:33 EDT
In /usr/X11R6/lib/ there should be a link:
libXv.so -> libXv.so.1

This is required for several programs, such as xine.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-07-16 09:27:02 EDT
That's intentional. The interface is not stable, so it shouldn't be a shared
library yet (this is at the request of the XFree86 people....)
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2001-07-16 19:31:21 EDT
Yes, as Bill says, it is very much intentional.  If xine requires
shared libXv, then xine is broken.  The xine people should be informed
that their software is building against non-standard shared libraries.

The shared libs are only present in rawhide now for backwards compatibility
with previous binaries.  They are *not* there to be linked against by new
