Shared library problem (BIG problem)


I installed Slackware 9 today.

It went well.

But I have a little problem.

When I restart the system I get to the part:
Starting OpenSSH SSH daemon: /usr/sbin/sshd
Updating shared library links: /sbin/ldconfig

And it stops. After 2 or 3 reboots the system starts normally.

What's the problem? Can I prevent updating shared library links in system startup?

Thanks in advance

Well, I can only consider a corrupted file system or a potential bad hard disk. The ldconfig program scans the directories that are specified in the /etc/ file and reads all the files and links. It then stores the infomation in the file /etc/ This information is used when a program desires to load a library to use or when compiling additional programs and the libraries are required. The file usually has only a few directories. The default file has only five directories in it. You may want to look at each of them and check out the directories. You could even just rename the file to something else, but leave the leave the cache file there. Technically, it would be a broken system, but it might help to identify if this is really the source of the problem.
