Description Rüpel 2012-12-10 08:40:19 UTC
When installing net-fs/ncpfs-2.2.6-r2, the following QA Notice appears:

 * QA Notice: Missing soname symlink(s):
 *      usr/lib/ ->

When running revdev-rebuild later, it shows this:

 * Checking dynamic linking consistency
[ 3% ]  *   broken /lib/security/ (requires
[ 21% ]  *   broken /usr/bin/ncopy (requires
 *   broken /usr/bin/nprint (requires
 *   broken /usr/bin/nsend (requires
... [and so on - every executable of ncpfs appears to be broken in terms of revdev-rebuild]

So net-fs/ncpfs is rebuild on *every* run of revdep-rebuild - very annoying!

Thanks for having a look.

And btw: revdep-rebuild is right. Mounting Novell shares does not work without the symlink.

So it seems we have a stable package that is broken. Thats why I suggest a higher importance.

Creating the symlink by hand does solve the problem.

Should be fixed in ncpfs-2.2.6-r3.  Thanks for reporting!
