Yes, they don't mix. If they are linked to same program the program dumps a core.

Libraries on Linux are different from Amiga, but they are not that bad once you get used to them. The main advantage over Amiga libraries is that you can easily have several versions of libraries on same system and when properly used and the system is installed correctly they don't interfere with each other. You could not do this on Amiga always when updating libraries one risked the stability of the system. All Amiga libraries were not that good on compatibility.
