Hi,

> Advice - be very careful if you use the SuSE updater.

You should report such issues to bugzilla instead of discouraging users from testing factory.

In your bugzilla report, be very specific about the information you provide (which updater are you using: we have lots of them; which .so.3 is causing problems; we have lots of them) and attach logfiles.

Advising people to be careful with the SuSE updater does not get the bugs fixed.

Never create such symlinks, this is wrong. If this would work (which it doesn't), the library had not been renamed from .so.3 to .so.4 in the first place.

I'm guessing that with .so.3 and .so.4, you mean libcurl. Yes, this library had a major update recently, but there is a compatibility package, so this should not have happened. (The update worked for me). If it didn't work smoothly for you, this is a bug that must be fixed instead of being worked around.
