I believe that it makes a difference whether you install them at the
same time, or separately. I have both versions of alsa-lib-devel
installed, but I think that installing one when the other is _already_
installed would fail.
Thanks for pointing out.
I can finally see some "documentation" about this behavior.
Will be checking for any development.
Do you know what happens in other distributions non based on RPM?
I've never used anything other than RedHat and Fedora (almost 10 years now), but I
think it is time
to look around.
Would be interesting to know how they handle this tricky problem?
