Lintian Reports

E ldconfig-symlink-missing-for-shlib

All reports of ldconfig-symlink-missing-for-shlib for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The package should not only include the shared library itself, but also the symbolic link which ldconfig would produce. (This is necessary, so that the link gets removed by dpkg automatically when the package gets removed.) If the symlink is in the package, check that the SONAME of the library matches the info in the shlibs file.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 8.1 (Run-time shared libraries) for details.

Severity: important, Certainty: certain

Check: shared-libs, Type: binary, udeb
