Tag versions

Wmaintscript-calls-ldconfig

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.55. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 8053610. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check maintainer-scripts/ldconfig.

Visibility: warning

Exemptions:

The given maintainer script calls ldconfig. However, explicit calls in maintainer scripts should be replaced by a dpkg trigger.

Please replace the "ldconfig" call with an activate-noawait ldconfig trigger. With debhelper it is usually sufficient to simply add that line to debian/<package>.triggers.

If you use debhelper, this warning will appear if the package was compiled with debhelper before 9.20151004. Assuming all ldconfig invocations have been added by debhelper, this warning will disappear once the package is rebuilt with a newer version of debhelper.
