A shared object was identified in a library directory (a directory in the standard linker path) which doesn't have a SONAME. This is usually an error.
SONAMEs are set with something like
where 0 is the major version of the library. If your package uses libtool,
then libtool invoked with the right options should be doing this.
To view the SONAME of a shared library, run
readelf -d on the
shared library and look for the tag of type SONAME.
The tag is present in Lintian version
That is the most recent version we know about.
We use semantic versions.
The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the
release tag in our Git
You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 43a81d7. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check libraries/shared/soname/missing.
