1 Hi,
2 I updated recently libpcre to 8.30-r2 on ~10 system without
3 problems. Today I updated the last one. As usually, this
4 message has been printed:
6 * Messages for package dev-libs/libpcre-8.30-r2:
7 * Old versions of installed libraries were detected on your system.
8 * In order to avoid breaking packages that depend on these old libs,
9 * the libraries are not being removed. You need to run revdep-rebuild
10 * in order to remove these old dependencies. If you do not have this
11 * helper program, simply emerge the 'gentoolkit' package.
12 *
13 * # revdep-rebuild --library '/lib64/' &&
14 rm '/lib64/'
16 So I run first:
17 # revdep-rebuild --library '/lib64/'
19 To my big surprise, none packages have been found:
20 * There are no dynamic links to /lib64/ All done
22 I was a little suspicious because I remember on all other
23 systems 2 packages had to be recompiled. So I created copy
24 of the above mentioned library in homedir, and removed it:
25 # rm '/lib64/'
27 Then I tried "revdep-rebuild" and got plenty of errors:
29 grep: error while loading shared libraries:
30 cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
32 Apparently, grep needs But how is it possible
33 that "revdep-rebild --library '/lib64/'" does not
34 find any package linked to, yet when I remove it,
35 grep is broken?
37 Does anybody remember what was the 2nd package linked to
38, which had to be recompliled after libpcre
39 upgrade?
