/lib and /usr/lib


Maybe this is slighty above Newbie, not sure. The two subject directories, from what I understand, contain c and c++ libraries needed for dynamically linked apps. So....would a linux system need anything in those directories if every app on the system was compiled statically?

TIA - Joe

Yes, SO files (static libraries). This is, btw, more a question for the programming forum here at LQ.

I closed the original since the forum for the dupe is more
sensible and crabboy had already suggested to carry on the
discussion in programming :} ....


Cheers,
Tink
