Description Julie Battle 2005-06-15 10:47:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
Just did a fresh install of version 3, update 5.  Tried to use ssh to connect to other machines:

got this error:

ssh: error while loading shared libraries: libkrb5.so.3
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I modified my PATH environment variable to point to /usr/kerberos/[lib|lib64]/libkrb5.so.3, but still couldn't ssh.

Had Update 5 BETA previously loaded on this exact architecture, and ssh worked fine there.

Searched RedHat Knowledgebase for "libkrb5.so.3" and just got a bunch of nonsense that has nothing to do with libkrb5.so.3.

Help !

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version 3 Update 5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. type ssh on the command line
2. watch error appear

Actual Results:  received error, then got a prompt back

Expected Results:  I should have gotten a secure-shell connection to another server.  Network connectivity exists, because telnet outbound works OK.

What is the contents of the /etc/ld.so.conf file?
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2005-07-01 04:26:50 EDT
And what ldd /usr/bin/ssh prints?

I've got a mail from the reporter that this bug no longer happens on her system
after reinstalling.
