For example, if your cache contains libfoo.so.1 and you installed /usr/local/lib/libfoo.so.2, then ldconfig -vm /usr/local/lib will print: Updating libfoo.so.1.0 to /usr/local/lib/libfoo.so.2 -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
