Lintian Reports

E binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath

A subset of the reports of binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath for the archive. Unfortunately the full list is too long, so only 206 instances are listed on this page. At most 3 tags are shown per package. If you need the full list of tags, please download the lintian.log.gz file and extract the data you need.

The extended description of this tag is:

The binary or shared library sets RPATH or RUNPATH. This overrides the normal library search path, possibly interfering with local policy and causing problems for multilib, among other issues.

The only time a binary or shared library in a Debian package should set RPATH or RUNPATH is if it is linked to private shared libraries in the same package. In that case, place those private shared libraries in /usr/lib/package. Libraries used by binaries in other packages should be placed in /lib or /usr/lib as appropriate, with a proper SONAME, in which case RPATH/RUNPATH is unnecessary.

To fix this problem, look for link lines like:

        gcc test.o -o test -Wl,--rpath,/usr/local/lib


        gcc test.o -o test -R/usr/local/lib

and remove the -Wl,--rpath or -R argument. You can also use the chrpath utility to remove the RPATH.

Refer to for details.
