Description niemand_bugs 2019-06-06 13:34:44 UTC
The ebuild 3.60-r1 for cndrvcups-common-lb installs in /usr/lib32 and creates a symlink pointing to it in /usr/lib, thus preventing the migration trough unsymlink-lib.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo emerge net-print/cndrvcups-common-lb
2. sudo unsymlink-lib --analyze
Actual Results:  
The migration is not possible due to a existing both in /usr/lib and /usr/lib32.

Expected Results:  
The collision shouldn't have existed.

Comment 2 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2019-06-06 17:38:43 UTC
The symlink is only done with SYMLINK_LIB=yes only as it's needed at runtime. Other packages like chrome-gnome-shell, dracut or distcc are relying on this hacks to not break with other systems... but I don't know how to "inform" unsymlink-lib about this situation . 

@Michal, what would be the proper way to provide the symlink for SYMLINK_LIB=yes but not for the others?
