Not a symbolic link ??
Can somebody tell me what is meant by the following message:
/sbin/ldconfig: /usr/local/lib/libsane-hpaio.so.1 is not a symbolic link
/sbin/ldconfig: /usr/local/lib/libhpip.so.0 is not a symbolic link
I get this message when i try to install the any package.
My guess is that those need to be symbolic links to something else (my guess is to libsane-hpaio.so and libhpip.so).
Did you go to /usr/local/lib and ls -F to see if those files exist and if they're symbolic links or not?
This is what I got
# /usr/local/lib# ls -alF
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 320 2006-06-27 17:59 ./
drwxr-xr-x 14 root root 336 2006-05-18 01:01 ../
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 842 2006-06-27 17:59 libhpip.la*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 456838 2006-06-27 17:59 libhpip.so*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 456838 2006-06-27 17:59 libhpip.so.0*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 456838 2006-06-27 17:59 libhpip.so.0.0.1*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 927 2006-06-27 17:59 libsane-hpaio.la*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 356025 2006-06-27 17:59 libsane-hpaio.so*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 356025 2006-06-27 17:59 libsane-hpaio.so.1*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 356025 2006-06-27 17:59 libsane-hpaio.so.1.0.0*
As those files are executable I tried running them, and this is what i got.
# /usr/local/lib# ./libsane-hpaio.so
# root@aTTock:/usr/local/lib# ./libsane-hpaio.so.1
I can still install packages. Does it matter If I am getting this message ?
I just read that those are temporary files probably from when something crashed. I would mv the two you got errors for (libsane-hpaio.so.1 & /usr/local/lib/libhpip.so.0) and they should get recreated as symbolic links. Another thread I found online said you could just delete them, but I'd rather move them and be able to restore them if needed.
I mv'ed the files, and the problem is solved.
Thanks for your help, pljvaldez ~
