Description of problem:
after upgrade from RH7.3 to 8.0, imlib-1.9.13-9 provides libImlib.so.11,
but enlightenment-0.16.4-7 still requires libImlib.so.1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ldd /usr/bin/enlightenment
Actual Results: can't login after selecting enlightenment with desktop
because enlightenment crashes
workaround: create symlink for libImlib.so.1 pointing to libImlib.so.11
We haven't shipped enlightenment since 7.2. I'm not sure there's anything we
can really do about this.
It probably would have been nice to do a compat lib for the old imlib,
but we didn't, and it's too late really.
If you want to use enlightenment you'll need to recompile it.
Ok, fine. Why didn't the 7.3->8.0 upgrade tell me it was deprecated?
or 8.0 does not provide the libImlib.so.1 required?
or WARN due to unsatisfied dependency?
(how am I to know unless I examine the dependencies of each of the 600-plus
packages on my system before and after the upgrade? I really think this is
best handled by a communicative automaton)
