Description m.reid 1999-09-27 20:41:01 UTC
Running ldconfig -D on several systems (I have tried at
least three) that have RedHat 6.0 installed gives numerous
error messages, such as the following:

ldconfig: warning:
/usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/ has
inconsistent soname (
... a few screens ...
ldconfig: warning: /lib/ has inconsistent
soname (
ldconfig: warning: /lib/ has inconsistent
soname (
ldconfig: warning: /lib/ has inconsistent
soname (
ldconfig: warning: /lib/ has inconsistent
soname (

Since these systems all appear to work fine, and I have not
been able to find a system that does not have this
behaviour, I assume that there is no cause for alarm.

However, it is rather disconcerting to see this when one is
trying to resolve problems with dependencies...

This is normal behavior. ldconfig has a very strict (and not always right) idea
about how a soname should look like.
