Re: Debian and LSB (was Re: [seul-edu] ISO Project Questions)

Its not the LSB RPMS so much i was concerned with as the dynamic linking to
the interfaces provided and required by LSB. A lot of the distributions that
you will be building for will be following lsb specs and FHS specs.
So while a non lsb complaint system will be using ld-linux.so.1 as the
dynamic linker then ld-lsb.so.1 will be used by LSB compliant systems. This
means if they are not built for both linkers meaning two packages they can
only run on one or the other. At least this is how I learned it.
