ERROR: omake: Symbol `FamErrlist' has different size in shared object, consider re-linking
-This error is caused when using Gamin rather than Fam; omake is

+This error is caused when using Gamin rather than FAM. Gamin is a
+binary-compatible replacement for libfam that does not use the
+system-wide monitor daemon. Most packages, however, are compiled and
+linked against libfam from the FAM package. They will work with Gamin
+without recompilation, but display the symbol size discrepancy
+warning. This error can safely be ignored.
If you really want to get rid of the warning, on an Ubuntu based OS,
run the following command:
sudo apt-get install libfam0
+
+Note that FAM misbehaves in certain environments, notably AFS-based
+systems.
