    Default zypper; should I worry?

    When I use zypper I get loads and loads of these:


    Code:
     Additional rpm output:
    # /sbin/ldconfig: /usr/lib/libopenal.so.1 is not a symbolic link
    # 
    # /sbin/ldconfig: /usr/lib/libSDL_mixer-1.2.so.0 is not a symbolic link
    # 
    # /sbin/ldconfig: /usr/lib/libtorrent-rasterbar.so.1 is not a symbolic link
    # 
    # /sbin/ldconfig: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 is not a symbolic link
    Are they important? Should I ignore them or post more details and find out how to change it so that zypper does not report them?

    I would post some of /var/log/zypper.log.........
    But there isn't one!
    There is a zypper.log.gz, & I got this from /var/log/zypp/history

    This is not OK. The files mentioned should be symbolic links, shortcuts if you want. I'd reinstall the named libs, and check whether all is alright afterwards. A symbolic link shows up like this:
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 7702 sep 7 11:03 libopenal.so.0
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 sep 16 12:18 libopenal.so.1 -> libopenal.so.1.8.466
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 230989 sep 7 11:03 libopenal.so.1.8.466

    As you may have guessed the second line indicates a symlink to the third. Yours are no symlinks or they are not there, so ldconfig cannot load them as it should.

    Oh Lawks! It looks like you have signed up for some more work, my dear Mr (or Ms) Knurpht! (I don't know if you know enough colloquial English to know the phrases "a glutton for punishment" or "he makes a rod for his own back")

    I think I understand the "idea" or "notion" or "concept" of symlinks, but not much more than that, should I:
    • start by deleting all of the offending libs and letting YAST/zypper rebuild?

    • When you say "I'd reinstall the named libs" do you mean I should explicitly ask zypper or yast to find them and update them?

    • The example you give:
      Code:
       -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 7702 sep 7 11:03 libopenal.so.0
      lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 sep 16 12:18 libopenal.so.1 -> libopenal.so.1.8.466
      -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 230989 sep 7 11:03 libopenal.so.1.8.466
      is , I am guessing, the output of a "find" command, as you might have seen on another thread (here: simple bash stuff - openSUSE Forums) I am only just starting to grapple again with "find".....


    Thanks again for sharing your time and expertise.....
