Eempty-shlibs

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.328. That is the most recent version we know about.

Although the package does not include any shared libraries, it does have a shlibs control file. If you did include a shared library, check that the SONAME of the library is set and that it matches the contents of the shlibs file.

SONAMEs are set with something like gcc -Wl,-soname,libfoo.so.0, where 0 is the major version of the library. If your package uses libtool, then libtool invoked with the right options should be doing this.

Note this is sometimes triggered for packages with a private shared library due to a bug in Debhelper.

Please refer to Bug#204975 and Bug#633853 for details.
