URGENT: strip: Unable to recognise the format of the input file: doesn't strip any libraries


Hello All,

I have been trying to use strip command for removing debugging symbols from shared library, libmv0.so for release operation as follows: strip --strip-debug libmv0.so.

It throws an error stating "strip: Unable to recognise the format of the input file" for libmv0.so and any object file.

Please help me resolve this as it is of high importance now.

You can specify the format
Code:
$ strip --help
. If you need the format
Code:
$ file file
