Re: shared libraries (not working ld.so.conf.d)



On Tuesday, Apr 14th 2009 at 05:20 -0000, quoth David Hl??ik:

=>Hello guys,
=>
=>I have patched my own libraries and override locations to them in ld.so.conf.d .
=>
=>Let's just see an example:
=>
=>[root david ld.so.conf.d]# cat /etc/ld.so.conf.d/cairo-lcd-x86_64.conf
=>/usr/lib64/cairo-lcd
=>
=>
=>Now , when I will execute ldd to check for shared library dependencies :
=>
=>1) gnome-terminal
=>
=>[root david ~]# ldd /usr/bin/gnome-terminal |grep libcairo
=>    libcairo.so.2 => /usr/lib64/cairo-lcd/libcairo.so.2
=>(0x00000032ef000000) -> OK
=>
=>this is totally ok and works as expected , but :
=>
=>2) gimp
=>
=>[root david ~]# ldd /usr/bin/gimp |grep libcairo
=>    libcairo.so.2 => /usr/lib64/libcairo.so.2 (0x00000032ee800000) ->
=>Totally WRONG
=>
=>this is wrong and looks for original library instead as it should.
=>
=>My question is : What is the cause of this problem? Does gimp and
=>others uses hard-linked libraries and ld.so.conf is for nothing??
=>
=>Thanks in advance!
=>David

Read the man page for ldconfig. You have to rerun it if you make changes.
