To keep the old libnss_*.so.1 modules back doesn't really fix
the problem. For libnss_*.so.2, there are also some changes in
internal libc functions, which have no new version symbol, and
are not binary compatible. I have make 2 add ons, one for
libdb 1.85, and one with the libnss_*.so.1 modules with the
old nss version 1 interface.
My problem is: If this modules will be installed, we are not
allowed to make the libnss_*.so -> libnss_*.so.1 link, because
this will overwrite the correct libnss_*.so.2 link.
I have tried to find the position in the Rules, which makes this
link, but I couldn't find it. My idea was, to add a new variable,
which forbids the creation of the second link. Can anybody tell
me, which rules I need to change ? We need the libnss_*.so.1
modules for static binaries like the rpm or dpkg package managers !
