I'd think it means what it says...

I don't know exactly how big the
stub for shared libraries would be,
but would assume that if you had a
stub of 256 bytes, and the library in
question happened to be pretty close
to that it wouldn't make sense to assume
it does anything useful. Thus it would be
sensible for ldconfig to ignore it.

Check the libraries it talks about with
ls -l <name> and see how big they are.

One possible cause might be a stale link,
an symlink pointing to a library that not
longer exists.


Cheers,
Tink

ok the libs its complaining about are ascii text files eg libcxa.so is a text file containg "INPUT ( libcxa.so.5 )", i'll replace them with symlinks and see what happens, guess i should have checked first.
