Elacks-ldconfig-trigger

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.108.13. That is the most recent version we know about.

The package installs shared libraries in a directory controlled by the dynamic library loader. Therefore, the package must trigger libc's "ldconfig" trigger to ensure the ldconfig cache is updated.

If the package is using debhelper, dh_makeshlibs should automatically discover this and add the trigger itself. Otherwise, please add activate-noawait ldconfig to the triggers file in the control member.

Note this tag may trigger for packages built with debhelper before version 9.20151004. In such case, a simple rebuild will often be sufficient to fix this issue.

Please refer to Debian Policy Manual section 8.1.1 and https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2015/08/msg00412.html for details.
