And how does the linker choose which library to use? Presumably it
would choose the one that had a nonempty intersection of dependencies
with the application. But what if there is more than one library that
meets that criterium?
For example, I could compile an ncurses program that is statically
linked against libc5. Does the linker choose the ncurses using libc5
or the one using libc6? Perhaps it doesn't matter?
David - maybe we could use seperate ld.so.conf's and append the
version number to the filename. My previous example would then be:
# this is /etc/ld.so.conf
# and this is /etc/ld.so.conf_1
Everything else is the same.
