> libltdl is a system library. its a wrapper around dlopen and whatever other forms of dynamic loading are possible on a system if that isn't there. it was split FROM libtool as it is used runtime. it seems fedora have decided to basically neuter the package and software. i guess that means esmart is now not compatible with fedora - unless u missed there being another package that now ships libltdl.so* and ltdl.h

Well that was my point. I'm still looking for the DEVEL package which
I can't find in the usual ways.

To Vapier: Yes it would be nice not to hack and to find the damn DEVEL
package. I could be wrong but from first looks, it seems that they
merged the whole thing. Have a look below:

[root@localhost ~]# yum whatprovides ltdl.h

libtool.i386                             1.5.22-2.2             installed
Matched from:

[root@localhost ~]# yum whatprovides libltdl

libtool-ltdl.i386                        1.5.22-2.2             core
Matched from:

libtool-ltdl.i386                        1.5.22-2.2             installed
Matched from:

libtool.i386                             1.5.22-2.2             installed

I emailed the fedora list to confirm this. Thanks for the replies.

With kind regards,
