zlib-1.2.4 upgrade on Solaris
Hey all,

So far, I've noticed on all my Solaris prefixes that the upgrade of zlib
breaks your system, as in: Python doesn't work any more due to a missing
This is caused by a missing soname in libz-1.2.3 and below on Solaris.
The simplest way to get your system going again is to create a symlink
for the missing

% cd $EPREFIX/lib
% ln -s

Since this is only a workaround, you best recompile all applications
that use libz (a lot :(). Regardless of whether you feel like doing
that or not, I strongly advise you to fix your python right away, by
simply reemerging it:

% emerge -1 python:2.6

After this you can remove the symlink again, and re-emerge applications
as you find them broken.
