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

Scenario: Running a debootstrapped Ubuntu 11.4 lxc guest on a Ubuntu 12.4 lxc host.

Inside the lxc guest, rsyslogd is constantly crashing with SIGABRT stating:

libgcc_s.so.1 must be installed for pthread_cancel to work
Signal 6 (SIGABRT) occured, execution must be terminated.

I'm not sure why libgcc_s.so.1 cannot be found. If I run ldconfig -p:

$# ldconfig -p | grep libgcc
        libgcc_s.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgcc_s.so.1
        libgcc_s.so.1 (libc6) => /usr/lib32/libgcc_s.so.1

It is listed. And both of those links are fine.

How do I resolve this problem?
