Computer Tips - ldconfig: /lib/libsomething is not a symbolic link
Date: 2012jun11 OS: Linux Q. ldconfig: /lib/lib<something> is not a symbolic link Whatr does that mean? A. As far as I can tell, it means that you have a duplicate copy of the named lib that is not a symbolic link. eg:/lib/libmylib.4and/lib/libmylib.4.BACKUPIts common to have lib's linked. Eg:/lib/libmylib.4 -> /lib/mylib4.2so ldconfig doesn't complain about that.
