Lintian ReportsBETA

shared-library-lacks-prerequisites

The listed shared library doesn't include information about the other libraries against which it was linked.

More specifically, "ldd foo.so" should report such other libraries. In your case, it reports "statically linked".

The fix is to specify the libraries. One way to do so is to add something like "-lc" to the command-line options for "ld".

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 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit fd97859. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check binaries/prerequisites.
