A little more insight would be useful here. The -_ variable issue should be handled for the most part already, I don't know about symlinks though. Is this still an issue, tpowa? If not can you possibly give me more detail... like a test case?

yes it is still an issue, imho.
if you add a symlink in binaries array it just adds the symlink as complete binary and doesn't add the binary and then symlink to it correct.

What's the status of this issue?
Comment by Aaron Griffin (phrakture) - Friday, 18 July 2008, 15:56 GMT
I think it's still an issue, but a minor one, seeing as a lot of people don't use the BINARIES list that often

correct -_ issue is fixed in latest mkinitcpio.
