Wpackage-has-unnecessary-activation-of-ldconfig-trigger

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.24. That is the most recent version we know about.

The package activates the ldconfig trigger even though no shared libraries are installed in a directory controlled by the dynamic library loader.

Note this may be triggered by a bug in debhelper, that causes it to auto-generate an ldconfig trigger for packages that do not need it.

Please refer to Debian Policy Manual section 8.1.1 and Bug#204975 for details.
