Description Christian Malerbakken 2005-11-23 06:31:14 UTC
after upgrading to mysql-5.0.16-r1, amarok faults with this message:

amaroK: [Loader] Starting amarokapp..
amaroK: [Loader] Don't run gdb, valgrind, etc. against this binary! Use amarokapp.
amarokapp: error while loading shared libraries: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory

inspecting the files installed by mysql, it appears this file(or link) is no
longer created.

Everything seems to work fine by just creating the symbolic link
/usr/lib64/ -> /usr/lib64/ (been playing
tracks for a couple of hours now, no errors)

Run revdep-rebuild after removing your symlink.

> Run revdep-rebuild after removing your symlink. 

Unfortunately won't help; mysql-5.0.16 ebuild for whatever reason stopped
creating these symlinks, this will break tons of stuff (also php is already
broken with that).

Comment 4 Francesco R. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-23 12:17:57 UTC
should be fixed in 5.0.16-r2
shuold becouse it's still unstable code, if interested see pkg_postinst()
function of -r2 ebuild

Still broken in -r2 ldconfig does not pick up any of the libs in /usr/lib/mysql/*
It still thinks the libs are in /usr/lib. I am on X86.

reopening due to comment #4

Created attachment 73470 [details, diff]
patch to fix symlink creation

The above patch fixes the small slip in the symlink creation. Also switched to
readlink -e since readlink -f always produces output here (even if symlink does
not exist), is that what you meant?

Comment 12 Francesco R. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-24 06:23:00 UTC
php 5 compile successfully for me with "-r3" .
Please test, I've a pretty messed up system at the moment (tonight CET the real
testing for me)
Comment 13 Ivan Yosifov 2005-11-24 07:34:22 UTC
-r3 worked for me too.
Comment 14 Harris Landgarten 2005-11-24 12:22:45 UTC
Libs are back with -r3. No problems noted
