preserved lib question
Howdy,

I have some preserved libs that just don't want to go away. I've ran
emerge @preserved-rebuild several times to no avail. I think the
problem is with portage not recognizing that one of the libraries is
symbolically linked to the other. Here they are:

!! existing preserved libs:

Any ideas on how to clean this up?

TIA,

Check which files it is protecting:

portageq list_preserved_libs /

Then identify which package they belong to (equery f filename).
Manually delete the protected files, then emerge --oneshot the
packages they came from. That cleaned it up for me when a similar
thing happened a few weeks ago.
