As no reply is listed in this thread:
rpmlint verbose info would say: '''The soname of the library is neither of
the form lib<libname>.so.<major> or
The period really isn't the problem, the missing version number is.
Often it's an error because it bears a higher risk of causing breakage.
Btw, "mygui" in Fedora 14 is mispackaged related to this. This lib
has been moved into a private directory %_libdir/MYGUI/ where it is
placed outside run-time linker's search path. The lib isn't found by
the -tools and -demos, which are linked with it. Additionally, some
of the packages suffer from unowned directories.
Thanks. I filed a bug about this. I'll look at getting things fixed for this,
probably in an F16 time frame, as it will be past beta by the time I get
a chance to look at it in depth and I don't want to break other packages.
