@cgenogo: It's not even remotely the same. The "" package does a symlink called to ( which is a symlink to ). Doing a symlink against a library with different so version is bad, because the so version only changes when the API changes. Therefore anything that links against the symlinked will get another API than it expects which can lead to undefined behaviour.

The libudev0 package on the other hand does the correct thing. It builds the old libudev from source instead of creating this symlink.

@FSMaxB but this package does the same as so what is wrong with that?

Please change the dependency to libudev0, because the former is a really really dirty hack (just a symlink) whereas the latter actually builds the old libudev.

Shouldn't the creation of symlinks be executed in the install script that runs on the machine installing the package, rather than the package function in the PKGBUILD, which is executed in a chroot on the machine creating the package? The presence of these library symlinks in the packager's machine should not determine their inclusion in the installation of the package; rather, it's their presence in the machine installing the package that should be checked (do-able in a separate install script).

@mac Thanks for this hint. I fixed the package.

Hi, you could remove symlink to libudev and add in dependency:
