Post subject: missing shared libraries after dist-upgrade  PostPosted: 09.03.2011, 02:08

I recently had a complete HDD failure of my aptosid system drive, Fortunately I have backup files separately so data file recovery is not issue.

However after doing a new install of a KDE-Lite 2011-01 system & then
a apt-get dist-upgrade off the net as per the aptosid manual I find that a number of shared libraries are not installed and programs cannot run.

For example:

class-mail : can't find libept.so.0

sylpheed : cant find libgpgme.so.11

kmail : libgpgme-pthread.so.11

libre-office : libstlport-gcc.so.4.6

I'm sure there will be others missing.

How do i get these file installed ? and from where ?

This has not been an issue with either sidux or aptosid before and I have done dist-upgrades successfully previously.

it is not an issue with aptosid either, but i have not the slightest idea, why you have those missing.
please check your install media with the md5-sum option in grub menu, when booting.

Check the md5sum of the CD file aptosid.686

brett@sidux94:/media/aptosid/aptosid$ /usr/bin/md5sum aptosid.686
9cdfebf598b9fa263cc8b5bd5778b50b aptosid.686

=========================
Below line copied from md5sums file on CD

9cdfebf598b9fa263cc8b5bd5778b50b *aptosid/aptosid.686
9cdfebf598b9fa263cc8b5bd5778b50b aptosid.686

They ae the same, perhaps my CD is faulty in some way ? , but I had no errors
during the install which took about 4 minutes.

Is there anyway to get the 'missing' files ? Otherwise I will have to download and
burn 2011-01 again, install it and then do dist-upgrade again.

you did not do what i said, otherwise you would know if your CD is sane.
and no, a clean install in no matter what time means nothing at all.
au contraire, strange errors like that point to b0rken install media.

@dragoncity, insert your CD into the drive. Open a terminal and log in.


      Code:
don@aptosidbox:~$ cd /dev/
don@aptosidbox:/dev$ md5sum cdrom
71b031ee98bc003e2af7698507aaceba  cdrom


for the 2011-01 KDE Lite CD (i386).

why not try putting the ISO onto a USB stick following the instructions in the manual, booting the live image from it and do a new install (be sure to format the partition(s) aptosid will be installed to).

I have reinstalled from the same cd and install some packages to see if they would install.
claws-mail installed ok using apt-get and I noticed a number of libraries also installed.
Claws-mail works.

The only difference with this install was that I made sure the / directory was re-formatted from the installer, previously I
had used gparted ( from the installer) to created & formatted /, swap, /home and figured that a second formmatting was not required,
Perhaps it is ?

Now to re-update the system!
Thanks for all your advice, but we'll never know what really happened.

No, the default is to format, but you can deselect the 'tick' box in the installer
