annoying message - /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0 is not a symbolic link
 
Hi,

since a few weeks I always get the annoying message
/usr/lib/libpng12.so.0 is not a symbolic link
whenever an 'ldconfig' is run, e.g. while postprocessing
after a package's install.

Does anybody know how to get rid of it.
Unfortunately,
net-misc/nxclient-3.4.0.7 depends on libpng:1.2

Many thanks for a hint,
Helmut.

I'm guessing that file should be a symlink to a longer name, similar
to png14:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 2010-05-10 14:57 /usr/lib/libpng14.so.14 -> libpng14.so.14.2.0*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 149088 2010-05-10 14:57 /usr/lib/libpng14.so.14.2.0*

Maybe reinstalling png12 would fix it automatically, or you can just
rename that file to use the longer name and then create the symlink
yourself, using the shorter name.
