Ah, but that's not practical. All libraries? Surely glibc not. At some point you have to decide to take libraries from openSUSE instead. It is difficult for us users to know which libraries should come from the distribution and which should come from packman instead.


Sure, it would be better this would be forced by the packages itself, but
unfortunately that's not always to case.
