Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I just updated my servers from CentOS 5.5 to CentOS 5.6, and now when I run ldconfig, I get these:

ldconfig: libraries libdchtvm32.so.5 and libdchtvm64.so in directory /usr/lib have same soname but different type.
ldconfig: libraries libdchcfl32.so and libdchcfl64.so.5 in directory /usr/lib have same soname but different type.
ldconfig: libraries libdchbas32.so.5 and libdchbas64.so.5 in directory /usr/lib have same soname but different type.
ldconfig: libraries libdchtvm64.so and libdchtvm64.so.5 in directory /usr/lib have same soname but different type.

I would like to know two things... should I care about this, and if so, what should I do about it?

Thanks in advance.

Something (srvadmin from Dell, after a quick Google search) has decided to put its 64-bit libraries in /usr/lib, which is incorrect; 64-bit libraries belong in /usr/lib64 or the like. Run rpm -qfi against the files and make sure the packages are correct for the distro.

...for the distro and / or the arch. –  wzzrd Apr 17 '11 at 8:19
    
After uninstalling the 32-bit Dell libs, the issue has abated.. –  QWade Apr 18 '11 at 4:10
    
That's fine, but keep in mind that the 64-bit libs are still in the wrong place. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Apr 18 '11 at 4:12
    
Good catch, I had not considered that the libs were in the worng place. I guess my ignorance is showing through. How would you suggest I go about moving them to the right place? Is it as simple as relocating them to /usr/lib64? –  QWade Apr 26 '11 at 18:56
    
It might be, but normally the package is responsible for putting them in the right place. If it doesn't do so then I'd file a bug report with Dell. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Apr 26 '11 at 19:02
