Thread: Preload error in console

  1. #1

    Default Preload error in console

    When using console, I keep getting errors almost whenever I do anything. The error is this:
    Code:
    ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib64/libv4l/v4l2convert.so' from /etc/ld.so.preload cannot be preloaded: ignored.
    It's very annoying and spams the window. I've checked, and /usr/lib64/libv4l/v4l2convert.so exists. Why doesn't it want to preload it?
    I'm using KDE 4.2 and OpenSUSE 11.1 x86_64.

    What have you got running at the time?

    Do you use Skype at all?

    This command usually is added to the preload file to fix compat with
    some webcams,

    I only have WineCFG (or Wine itself sometimes) running, and I'm not using Skype at all. I think I've seen this error with other apps, but I'm not actually sure.

    I had the same error.
    The package libv4l contains v4l2convert.so so i deleted it with some
    dependencies like vlc and amsn, none of them are critical to me.
    It will get solved with a update for libv4l, but or now my problems are
    solved.
    Pc wouldn't reboot or shutdown because of the error.

    As root just comment out the entry in /etc/ld.so.preload

    If that works for you and does not cause probs anywhere else then it
    should be OK.

    Hmm, you're right. Looks like removing that line simply works. I tried changing the line, and one time it didn't allow me to login with KDESU, only with SU from the console, thus locking out KWrite from accessing the file... But this time it works.

    great glad to have helped, just a bit of advice though try and get used
    to using something like pico or nano text editors from the console you
    never know when you might need them :-)

    These can be picked up from the SuSE repos and are my personal favs YMMV
    though.
