For each shared lib, create a shim as above that has no SONAME. It can link itself to the real library. Since it refers to just one, it can have an RPATH plus basename and still only find the correct library. Then link your program with the shim instead of the real library, and do this by specifying the full path. Your program will then include the same path to the shim. It's not ideal, but it should work. -Olaf. -- Olaf 'Rhialto' Seibert -- rhialto at falu dot nl ___ Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on \X/ no account be allowed to do the job. --Douglas Adams, "THGTTG"
