Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.


All lib3ds 2.0 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/lib3ds-2.0.0_rc1' All lib3ds 1.3 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-libs/lib3ds-1.3.0-r1' Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
