Description Gergan Penkov 2005-07-23 11:15:50 UTC
The wxGTK-ebuild for the 2.4.2-series do not set the soname-field of the dynamic
libraries. For example 
objdump -x /usr/lib/|grep SONAME
should return sth like 
The resolution is very simple, adding sth like
myconf="${myconf} --enable-soname" 
in src_compile(), will create the corresponding soname-fields in the libraries.

that's a backwards ass test ... just run:
readelf -d <lib> | grep SONAME
Comment 2 Gergan Penkov 2006-03-14 19:19:45 UTC
I know - it was a simple demonstration. And I use a python script with pyrex bindings to libelf for these things :)
Anyway will this be fixed someday.

wxGTK-2.4 is being phased out, see Bug 145032.
