Slack: script detects orphan libraries, broken lib links, missing deps & stuff
 
1 Attachment(s)
My recent borked upgrade to -current inspired me to try to come up with a way to sanity-check the lib and bin dirs for broken library symlinks (possibly indicating missing libs) and for binaries and libraries that belong to no installed package, as well as missing dependencies.

This script is the result.

I've checked the script results manually, and it appears to be accurate, so I figured I'd post it here for a second opinion, and/or because others may find it useful too. I'm not aware of another popular method of doing this on Slackware, so here it is:

Current version: 1.07

# BUGFIXES & ChangeLog:
# BUGFIX: grep problem with cxxlibs libs on Slack13/32
#
# Version 1.01 - March 09 2010:
#-- Output the NVIDIA driver blurb only if nvidia.ko is present on the machine.
#-- Check if we're root; if not, quit due to inadequate read/access permissions.
#-- Break some long lines using \'s. Clear screen at start.
# Version 1.02 - March 10 2010:
#-- Adding checking for binaries missing dependencies.
#-- Making two modes of operation: default & 'ridiculous'
#  you can pass the 'ridiculous' option to the script, and 'Round 3' will search
#  a lot more directory paths for missing dependencies.
#-- Also fixed visual progress display - it displays dots now and will
#  not print stuff to the screen that confuses people (including myself).
#-- Formatted the output.log in a slightly more greppable fashion (I hope you like that!)
#-- Don't bother clearing screen at startup.
#-- Put everything into functions.
# Version 1.03 - skipped.
# Version 1.04 - March 12 2010:
#-- Added checking for orphan binaries (now Round 3)
#-- Added --version switch and --help switch
#-- changed mode switches to --basic and --full (instead of ridiculous or not)
#-- tuned up the search-path identifying code (no more using $PATH for bin dirs)
#-- by popular demand, the orphans.log file is now shown automatically upon completion.
#-- also by popular demand, the shebang now points to /bin/sh
# Version 1.05 - March 13 2010:
#-- remove /boot/initrd*/bin from $BINDIRS
#-- modify sanity-checking of libs/binaries identified in rounds 2+3
#  because the filename filtering is not perfect. Avoid non-[ELF|lib|ar] files.
#-- remove .pc files from the search (what was I thinking?! Silly ASCII files.)
#-- double-check that libs found in round2 are not in the /incoming/ folder in the
#  */packages/log file -- glibc-solibs are like this, causing false positives.
#-- lessen the use of `basename` -- use only where necessary (slight speed improvement)
#-- make the progress display more meaningful (but still slightly vague)
# Version 1.05.1 - later the same day..
#-- tiny correction of counting of the paths. very tiny. does not affect functionality.
# Version 1.06 - March 14 2010
#-- more bug fixes -- some paths not being checked.
#-- remove /boot/initrd* folders from search paths.
# Version 1.07 - March 17 2010
#-- add new mode & switch: --verify
#  This function checks that every single file contained in every allegedly installed
#  package, is actually present on the system where it is supposed to be.
#  The function ignores doinst.sh scripts and slack-desc files, and a few other things.
#  Read the comments verify_package_contents() for full ignore list.

THANKS: Sahko, for posting that Arch script (and to whomever wrote that Arch script); that helped!
THANKS: To those who have provided feedback!
THANKS: Matt -- many bugs found!

Don't neglect to read the #comments in the script.

Feedback definitely welcome, especially bug reports:

If any directories are being EXcluded from the scanning, but they should be INcluded, do let me know, and I'll investigate- it's possible I've not perfectly identified/removed every likely/unlikely search destination from the search paths.

Enjoy,

Sasha

I am using bash as my shell.

Copy/paste might gone wrong too :/ would it be possible to host actual file? :) or maybe i do not have needed packages in my system?

GrapefruiTgirl 03-09-2010 01:33 AM

Weird.. I will attach the file as an attachment -- copy/paste may have gone wrong from my end too. Give me a moment.

OK, file attached as "orphans.txt" which you can rename to "orphans.sh" or whatever you like :) and actually, I can add a checksum too.. Just a moment, and it will be there.

mlangdn 03-09-2010 01:37 AM

Well, I used it, and it found "orphaned" libs. However, these libs all were for software I installed myself and not through the normal package way. I thought it might help me in my other quest, but so far no good.

That said - this is very nice work! And I do thank you for what will be a very useful tool! :)

mlangdn 03-09-2010 01:40 AM

Did you change the script's top line from:

Code:

#!/bin/dash
to:

Code:

#!/bin/bash

GrapefruiTgirl 03-09-2010 01:41 AM

Heh :) thanks mlangdn -- yes, it (perhaps I should make that more clear for newer Slackers) is most useful if your system has all its software installed via the package manager, either default slackpkgs, or ones made with src2pkg or whatever; as long as they are in a Slackware Package, they won't be reported as orphans.

I **try** on my system to follow the rules on this :p but yes, once in a while I end up installing *something* in a hurry to get onto the next thing, and forget to make a package.

Plus, as noted in the comments, stuff like the nvidia driver, which most of us install using the installer from nvidia, are also reported as orphaned.

Cheers!
Sasha

May i ask some kind of noob question? Now that i have some orphaned libraries, what should i do with them? just remove the files? :)

GrapefruiTgirl 03-09-2010 01:47 AM

I would remove them, yes. HOWEVER -- it has been quite some time since I myself have used Slackware-NON-64, so please manually verify that the orphaned packages REALLY do not belong on your current system, and that they really have been upgraded with something else.

Chances are good that you can simply delete them; however I'd wait for feedback from someone maybe who is still running a comparable version of Slack to yours, to make sure that you have the correct & newer versions of those libs.

At a glance, it does look to me like you have several versions of a couple things there, but again, wait for better verification on those particular packages for your 32bit Slack.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...a-file-793828/

and it seems that those files belongs to cxxlibs package which comes with slackware 13:
http://slak.homelinux.org/pkgs/?act=....1-2-2.10.0.so

And if i removepkg /var/log/packages/cxxlibs--6.0.10-i486-1.txz then your script shows no orphans at all :) but when i install this package back with slackpkg install package cxxlibs then those files appears again as orphans.

Not sure if it's good or bad, but thought i should let you know.

But that also might be caused by some problems not yet clear to me, as my system is acting bit weird after reverting from -current to stable :/

Hmmmm.. Interesting.. Yes, I appreciate you letting me know, as it is certainly possible for bugs or weird behaviour on a machine other than my own (not that my machine is immune from weird behaviour, no!) :) and if it's a bug, I'll fix it.

You are running Slack 13.0 32bit right? Can you verify that version for me?

Oop! I see the problem. A fix will be ready shortly.

Yes Slackware 13.0 32bit :)

Allrighty then.. Whew, that was weird.

I *think* the problem reported by Affromen is fixed -- but further testing will help make sure of that.

I downloaded the problem cxxlibs package for Slack13/32 and manually stuck the libs in my /usr/lib folder. I ran the script, and the erronious libs were detected as orphans (correctly). Then, I created a phony package logfile in /var/log/packages for the phony cxxlibs package, and ran the script again. The libs were now NOT detected as orphaned (correct again).
I deleted the phony logfile, and ran the script again! And again correctly, the libs/symlinks were reported as orphaned.

Finally I deleted all the phony libs I manually installed, and the script ran cleanly, reporting no errors about these things.

So... Using the exact same package that Affromen had trouble with, the problem is gone for me. Please let me know if this now works correctly for you (whoever :) )

EDIT: See that weird crap at the start of the BUGFIXES line? Far as I can tell, that's the only instance of it, and I did the checksum WITH that typo in the file. There are no such typos in the actual code. It's caused by me using NANO text editor, with mouse support, and when I click back and forth between windows, this crap comes from the mouse. I've been fixing those stupid things all evening, but I missed that one.
Nano I think will not become my favorite editor :/

redownloaded orphans.txt and tried to run it again, but still same output on my machine:
Code:

# sh orphans.sh
## Count installed packages: 813
## Checking for missing libraries (via broken symlinks)...
Done.
## Searching for orphaned libraries (not belonging to an installed package)...
/usr/i486-slackware-linux/lib/libstdc++-3-libc6.1-2-2.10.0.so
/usr/i486-slackware-linux/lib/libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so
/usr/i486-slackware-linux/lib/libstdc++.so.4.0.0
/usr/i486-slackware-linux/lib/libstdc++.so.5.0.7
All done!

maybe it is really something wrong with my system :/

There is orphans.log:
Code:

# cat orphans.log
## Slackware check for orphaned/missing libraries: Tue Mar  9 11:10:53 GMT+2 2010

Done.

Uhh.. Are you posting your log results in two pieces for a particular reason ? :)

If so, can you re-post it in one piece, as one log? I'm being a bit mixed up reading it the way it's posted (it's getting VERY late here for me!)

The first little piece you posted indicates some problem.. But the second file you pasted, it shows all A-OK :scratch:
