lacks-ldconfig-trigger

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.

For more information please consult:

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.111.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit ce6249d. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check libraries/shared/trigger/ldconfig.
