Re: `man' can't load `ld.so', etc.

Hi Bill,

I'm the man package maintainer.

I suspect that your problems are not man specific - you mention that
no other person except root can log in.

I would suggest that you use ldconfig to check you shared libs are OK

root@tigger# ldconfig -v
ldconfig: version 1.7.10
        libXpm.so.4 => libXpm.so.4.6
        libX11.so.6 => libX11.so.6.0
        libXIE.so.6 => libXIE.so.6.0
        libXaw.so.6 => libXaw.so.6.0
        libXt.so.6 => libXt.so.6.0
        libdb.so.1 => libdb.so.1.85.1
        libtk.so.4 => libtk.so.4.0.0
        libtkx.so.4 => libtkx.so.4.0.0
        libtclx.so.3 => libtclx.so.3.2.0
        libtcl.so.3 => libtcl.so.3.1.0
        libvga.so.1 => libvga.so.1.2.5
        libe2p.so.1 => libe2p.so.1.0
        libe2fs.so.1 => libe2fs.so.1.0
        libss.so.1 => libss.so.1.0
        libet.so.1 => libet.so.1.0
        librl.so.2 => librl.so.2.0.3
        libcurses.so.0 => libcurses.so.0.1.2
        libdl.so.1 => libdl.so.1.7.10
        libc.so.4 => libc.so.4.6.27
        libm.so.4 => libm.so.4.6.27
root@tigger# more /etc/ld.so.conf

You can also try ldd to examine the libs man needs:

alvar@tigger: ldd man
        libc.so.4 (DLL Jump 4.6pl27) => /lib/libc.so.4.6.27

Finally use strace to look at what the man packages is trying to do.

alvar@tigger: strace -f -o /tmp/foo man cat

This will be long but should show you what process/executable is

BTW man might not be the best program to use to track down you
problems - it spawns a lot of subprocesses when it is formatting a man
page for the first time.

I hope this is helpful


PS Sorry for the name tigger, its a hangover fron the old SLS days. Im
sure a good 10% for all SLS systems were called tigger
