Update ld.so warning/SUMMARY

From: LLOYD DIPPLE (ldipple@hmiller.com)

I am sorry for the incomplete information on the first message.

I am running SunOS 4.1.3_U1b. With Open Windows v3.0
I have not installed any new software. Now when I run the cp or rm
commands I get this warning.

        /usr/lib/libc.so.1.8 has older revision than expected 9

I did try to link the libc.so.1.8 lib to libc.so.1.9. This did
not fix the problem.

I also copied a libc.so.1.9 from my Sparc2 running same os version and
does not get this warning to the /usr/lib directory on my Sparc10.
This did not help the warning.

I have not put the patch in that is metioned in the respones below.
This warning is not causing any problems but, It is just very anoying and
people have asked me to correct this.

I do appreciate all of the replies I have already recieved. All of you
are a great help.

Here is some of the replies:

Hi Lloyd

It's not an error, it's a warning. Some process is linking (at run time)
to a newer version of the library than what it was compiled to link
with. Often, this is no big deal.

The problem is that the program was compiled using the
dynmacic library libc.so.1.9 and you are trying to
run it on a machine which is using libc.so.1.8

This is just a warning message and should run without any problems.

The best fix would be to get libc.so.1.9 from a system that has it
or lastly as a bandaid approach. do :

  ln -s /usr/lib/libc.so.1.8 /usr/lib/libc.so.1.9

This means that what someone is running was compiled on a system with
newer libraries. You can move in newer libraries onto any system, but
on some systems you might have to reconfig ld.so.cache, since it
contains a list of the libraries available. I'm not sure which OS you are
using, which makes a difference on how to correct it.

Hope this helps.

You have installed some piece of software that was built with version 1.9
of the libc libraries. I used patch 101759-02 back in October to get
version 1.9 of the libc libraries. I'm not sure if that is still the
most current patch, though. That should take care of you.
