X package shared library problem
If the new xlib and xdevel packages are installed in the wrong order then
the various *.so symlinks for the new libraries won't be made correctly.
Check that the /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so symlink exists and points to
libX11.so.6, and if it doesn't then re-install xdevel.
This is quite a nasty problem; no error messages are produced. Binaries
just get linked statically, and unless you're looking out for this then
you might not notice. I almost released a statically linked xpilot...
The problem is caused by ldconfig; when it is run in the xlib postrm, it
deletes the .so link. It doesn't replace this link when it's run in the
Can this be considered to be a bug in ldconfig?
