But I prefer the Debian library packaging guide, it's more clear in this aspect. However I guess than the author uses the version number as the SONAME number and don't know how to change it. Because I think that the different versions of the library have broken the binary compatibility. But, if I should leave the version numbers as the authors want, no problem. > > Also, my second question is about to create a dbg package. Upstream has > > some --enable-debug that is a -DDEBUG.

In this case are examples. thanks for the answer. best regards, Leo -- -- Linux User 152692 PGP: 0xF944807E Catalonia
