Default ldconfig: /usr/X11R6/lib/libvdpau_trace.so is not a symbolic link

After integrating libvdpau-0.2 with system when Nvidia binary driver 190.32 was already installed ldconfig always returns this:
ldconfig: /usr/X11R6/lib/libvdpau_trace.so is not a symbolic link
This is true - this library is not symlink anymore.

/usr/X11R6/lib is symlink to /usr/lib
In /usr/lib I have this:
/usr/lib/libvdpau_trace.so
/usr/lib/libvdpau_trace.so.190.32
/usr/lib/libvdpau_trace.la

.la and .so were installed by libvdpau-0.2 - the libvdpau_trace.so.190.32 remains from 190.32 driver.

How I can skip this ldconfig warning? It appears with any compilation.

This seems to be a bug in ldconfig: if libvdpau_trace.so.* exists and libvpdau_trace.so is not a symlink, it complains even if the SONAME is "libvdpau_trace.so". I think you can safely ignore this warning, or delete /usr/lib/libvdpau_trace.so.190.32 to make it go away.

The proper name for this library is libvdpau_trace.so, and the .190.32 suffix is an artifact of the NVIDIA .run packaging.
