Description chengqiang 2005-03-17 18:59:23 UTC
/usr/share is a symlink to /mnt/share. It get deleted by emerge to xorg-x11-6.8.2-r1. So I need mv new installed files in /usr/share to
/mnt/share and re-symlink it to get a sane system. 

Reproducible: Always

This bug is similar to #82333 i think.

I'd be happy if you attached a patch to fix the behavior. Perhaps you could use `readlink` for this.

6.8.2 won't be receiving any more non-security changes, and this bug doesn't
apply to 7.0.
