Yes, I think it was gpm. I am glad it has been fixed, but it should never have happened in the first place. That was sloppy.
revdep-rebuild is well and good, but why delete an old library? That's one of the advantages to dynamic libraries. The LVM command should not link against an exact 1.00 version, it should link against 1. The old library should not be removed. That's why dynamic libs have all those extra symlink versions.
These two problems are indicative of a sloppiness that I do not want or expect in my system. How many other sloppy problems are out there?
Gentoo has some very nice features, but it also has this dangerous sloppiness that makes me skittish.
