No, the dependency exists both in the RPM package and the
dynamically-linked binary itself. I found, the last time I checked
however, that it uses no symbols from libartsc.so.0, so this should
work:

# rpm -ivh --force afaapps-2.7-1.i386.rpm
# ln -s libNoVersion.so.1 /lib/libartsc.so.0

Caveat; this is very hacky, not recommended, and, of course, Your
Mileage May Vary :)


Cheers,
Phil
