           Summary: MIT Kerberos installation
           Product: Beyond LinuxFromScratch
           Version: a-SVN
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: BOOK
        AssignedTo: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: LFS-User at mcmurchy.com
         QAContact: blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org

The MIT Kerberos installation currently overwrites a library
(/usr/lib/libcom_err.{so,a}) that is previously installed by
the E2fsprogs package. This should probably be fixed somehow. The MIT package
has a switch to use the system-installed version of libcom_err, however, the
source code needs to be fixed to actually use it with the current E2fsprogs

There may come a day when a package expects to link to the E2fsprogs library
and will not be able to do so if MIT Kerberos is installed.

It very well may be that MIT Kerberos also installs a libss library which is
a conflict as well. However, I have not looked into it that deeply.
