The first bit is from output that script generates into my terminal, the second is cat from file orphaned.log

AHA!! There's no problem with your system!

Don't worry about what it says on the screen -- only the log file.

For some reason (like maybe you pressed ENTER a few times, or there's some other weird bug that I can't reproduce) you are getting a few lines on your terminal. I don't know why but it is very late here so I will have to re-investigate this tomorrow.

(of course, maybe someone can figure this out during the night!)

Meanwhile, just go by what's in the log -- notice that orphaned libs are identified by the words:

Orphaned library:

so if that is not there, there is no problem.

You can comment out this line from the script:
Code:
         printf "$DIR/$LIB                                                  \r"
and this should go away.

I get the below output as well but the log file says all ok. Will take a look into the massive 957 packages installed now.

bash-4.1$ sh orphans.sh
## Count installed packages: 957
## Checking for missing libraries (via broken symlinks)...
Done.
## Searching for orphaned libraries (not belonging to an installed package)...

I use the attached customized script from Arch's devtools which uses ldd to find broken library links.

NOTICE: I am currently (among other things) correcting that erronious output to the console.

However, please keep in mind that unless the line begins with:

Orphaned library:

it is not reporting an orphan.

Updated version will be available later on, with that console output removed.

@ sahko -- I'll have a look at that too, maybe I can learn something from it

I'm sorry for the minor thread detour, but out of interest, what happened with your -current upgrade? Those orphaned libraries look like things that shouldn't be orphaned. I do miss the package browser for quick reference on what exists where!

How do you mean "You miss the package browser" ? You mean pkgtool? It is still there.. Maybe you refer to a GUI tool like KPackage? Not sure if that still exists...

Anyhow, I am not certain what *exactly* happened to my upgrade -- I suspect it was my blatant disregard for changelog-reading while trying to do several things at once. Maybe I upgraded aaa_elflibs at the wrong time, or by the wrong means. After having finished downloading the upgrades, slackpkg began installing, and almost immediately things went to hell in a basket so I think it was elf-libs package that screwed it up. But I'm not certain.

Thanks Sasha for this script -- works well here.

And thanks also because looking at it I eventually founded a way of piping needed data in a "while read" construct, avoiding to write a file unnecessarily to feed it.

thanks Didier, glad you got something useful from it.

On the topic of piping stuff into `while` : I have discovered that the method I used here:

Code:
cat somefile | while read ...
works in cases where THIS code below, does not:
Code:
while read blah; do
  blah blah
done < somefile
I haven't looked into why one works and the other does not, nor WHEN one works and the other does not, but if someone knows, that'd be handy to know.
I was banging my head for hours one day using the latter method, when finally I switched the code to the FORMER method and suddenly all worked correctly.

Cheers!
Sasha

EDIT: P.S. there will be an update to the script later this evening; nothing super-major, just some cleanups and slight adjustments.

EDIT: New version -- 19:55 hrs (GMT -04:00) Tue Mar 09 2010

I don't know if this is related to that but following your first post I ended up replacing this:
Code:
echo ${chemin_vers_client[$num_client]}/install.rdf >chemin_install.rdf
while read chemin; do
  version_client[$num_client]=$(cat $chemin|awk '/<em:version>/ {print $0; exit}'|tr -d '[:alpha:]<>:/[:space:]')
done <chemin_install.rdf
by that:
Code:
version_client[$num_client]=$(echo $chemin_install_rdf| \
  while read chemin; do
   cat $chemin|awk '/<em:version>/ {print $0; exit}'|tr -d '[:alpha:]<>:/[:space:]'
  done)
At first I tried that instead:
Code:
echo $chemin_install_rdf| \
  while read chemin; do
   version_client[$num_client]=$(cat $chemin|awk '/<em:version>/ {print $0; exit}'|tr -d '[:alpha:]<>:/[:space:]')
  done
which didn't work because version_client[$num_client] was not accessible outside the while loop: I should have read better the abs-guide in order to understand in which cases variables are local...

At a glance, I'd say it's related, but honestly, I thought variables in the shell were only "local" to something if they were specifically defined as 'local' -- but the same thing is what was happening for me that time I spoke of: a variable was not being available inside the while loop by one means, but my the other means, it became available to the loop, but NOT available OUTSIDE the loop.

If I try to explain more about this, I may make matters worse because I don't have that particular code in front of me, and it was 'weird code' to start with. Maybe a new thread would be a good place to sort this out

Sorry, I meant http://packages.slackware.it/ . Like many other posters, I work from memory a lot without having a Slack box in front of me, so a completely OS agnostic search is very convenient
