nvidia-installer (331.20) deletes (silently) /usr/lib/libEGL.la
Hello, I installed 331.20 on Slackware 14.1 (32-bit), and found the following warnings in /var/log/nvidia-installer.log : [quote] WARNING: Unable to determine the architecture of the file '/usr/X11R6/lib/libEGL.la', which has an architecture-specific conflict.

Hello,

I installed 331.20 on Slackware 14.1 (32-bit), and found the following warnings in /var/log/nvidia-installer.log :


WARNING: Unable to determine the architecture of the file '/usr/X11R6/lib/libEGL.la', which has an architecture-specific conflict.
WARNING: Unable to determine the architecture of the file '/usr/lib/libEGL.la', which has an architecture-specific conflict.

WARNING: Unable to determine the architecture of the file '/usr/lib/libEGL.la', which has an architecture-specific conflict.


Furthermore, I noticed the installer silently removes the file /usr/lib/libEGL.la, which comes from the package mesa (i.e 9.1.7)

Note: 319.76 does not emit those warnings, and does not delete the file /usr/lib/libEGL.la


Is this supposed to be normal, or is there something wrong here ?



Thanks.

Same thing on LFS. Now I cannot build software: [code]libtool: link: cannot find the library `/usr/lib/libEGL.la' or unhandled argument `/usr/lib/libEGL.la' [/code] Any one solve this problem?

Considering it has always replaced mesa's libGL as well, I'd guess it's normal.

No, it is NOT normal, because you can not build anything with GUI!

Yes, I solve by similar way - by extracting needed file from mesa package.
