Re: [Evms-devel] EVMS: shared libraries with unversioned sonames

* Marcus Brinkmann

Then please propose or write a tool which creates the proper symlinks
from the sonames of the libraries and get it included in debianutils
or some other reasonable please.  Until there is a tool which does
that, people will not stop using ldconfig -n, because it works fine
for the platforms most people use.

I know that it doesn't make your life easier, but when Hurd is the odd
one out, you will often have to create tools which work on all

Unix _IS_ user friendly... It's just selective about who its friends are.
