Description Gregory Leblanc 2003-02-24 14:05:34 EST
Description of problem:
The latest betas and rawhide contain guile 1.6, whereas Red Hat Linux 8.0 was
using guile 1.4.  The shared object versions are different as a result of this
change (libguile.so.9 in 8.0, libguile.so.12 in 8.0.94).  This breaks
installation of several third-party packages.  When similar ABI compatability
changes have come up, a package with the old shared objects has been provided
(usually something like libguile9). 

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Phil Knirsch 2003-10-27 05:47:14 EST
For guile it wasn't seen as important to do a compat lib. We usually only do
them for libraries that have a large impact on our own previous releases and 3rd
party software.

I'd be interessted to know which 3rd party software breaks though.

Read ya, Phil
