ldconfig verboses about too small files
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:38 EST
Description of problem:
ldconfig complains about too small files during runtime and exits.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Yarrow Fedora Core 1
Steps to Reproduce:
"/sbin/ldconfig: File /usr/lib/libkdesu.so.4.1.0.#prelink#.6WYqO0 is
too small, not checked."
The question is why is there /usr/lib/libkdesu.so.4.1.0.#prelink#.6WYqO0.
This is a temporary file created by prelink, but it should be very quickly
disappear again. There are 3 things which could happen:
1) the box was rebooted or prelink killed while it was executing
(in this case just remove the file)
2) you were running ldconfig (or installing some rpm) at the same time
as prelink was prelinking the system (simply return ldconfig, the
file will not be there again)
3) there was some prelink bug and prelink crashed while processing
libkdesu.so.4.1.0. If so and you manage to reproduce it, I need
more details so that the bug can be fixed.
