Ino-symbols-control-file

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.6. That is the most recent version we know about.

Although the package includes a shared library, the package does not have a symbols control file.

dpkg can use symbols files in order to generate more accurate library dependencies for applications, based on the symbols from the library that are actually used by the application.

Please refer to the dpkg-gensymbols(1) manual page and https://wiki.debian.org/UsingSymbolsFiles for details.
