/usr/lib/libGL.so.1 missing after installing XFree86-libs-4.2.0-2.1?
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:39:08 EDT
After upgrading yesterday to various XFree86 4.2.0-2.1 packages, including
XFree86-libs, "rpm --verify XFree86-libs" reported that /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 was
missing. I can't see anything in the postinstall script for XFree86-libs that
would explain why it disappeared, nor does it disappear if I recreate it and
then run "ldconfig".
Did you upgrade just _some_ of 4.2.0, or all of it? You can not
mix and match packages from 4.1.0 and 4.2.0 if that is what you're
libGL is in /usr/X11R6/lib currently. Mesa package is obsoleted.
Here are the XFree86 packages currently on my system; I don't think there are
any problems here:
I realize that libGL is in /usr/X11R6/lib, but XFree86-libs-4.2.0-2.1 thinks a
there's supposed to be a link to in /usr/lib and that's what was missing after
jik:~/build/scripts!6> rpm -q -l -v XFree86-libs | grep /usr/lib/libGL
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 25 Jan 20 16:24 /usr/lib/libGL.so.1
This problem appears fixed in current 4.2.0-6.45. Please reopen if you
encounter the problem again though. I belive it was fixed a while back,
as I recall tweaking the symlinks a bit.
