Not quite. It's more complicated because of the fact that at least three different implementations (LAM/MPI, MPICH and MPICH2, OpenMPI) provide /usr/lib/libmpi.so and there is no soname encoded. Also note that it isn't strictly incompatible. Some users of Open MPI that were built agains 1.2.* continue to work under 1.3. | So I don't understand what this request is about. Can you explain? I am kindly requesting those who have a reverse dependency on Open MPI (aka libopenmpi1) to rebuild their package against the version in unstable. Let me/us know if you have other questions. My thanks to Christophe and Ondrej for dealing with paraview. One more down, couple more to go... Thanks, Dirk -- Three out of two people have difficulties with fractions. _______________________________________________ Pkg-grass-devel mailing list Pkgfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-grass-devel
